Concerned residents contacted my office regarding tree trimming requests in Sylmar. I’m pleased to inform you that my staff has been working with the Urban Forestry Division (UFD) to target trees in our community in need of service. As of this fiscal year, UFD has trimmed approximately 700 trees and counting. Since taking office I have worked closely with UFD to create more efficient strategies for tree trimming and locating vital areas in need.
