Why was my parkway tree trimmed?

The United City of Yorkville's Public Works Department is responsible for the maintaining of trees in City parkways. Parkway tree trimming is conducted periodically to ensure limbs will not obstruct the safe passage of pedestrians and vehicles alike. Parkway trees are trimmed to a height of 13' on the side of the tree nearest the street and 8' on the side of the tree nearest the sidewalk. This maintenance is performed on a 5-7 year rotation of the entire town. Homeowners may request tree trimming/maintenance for a tree in their parkway here.
