Removing dead trees and replanting to rebuild our tree canopy is work I’ve been leading for the last four years. I have been working closely with the Urban Forestry Division (UFD) to maintain and grow a healthy tree canopy for our community. I’m pleased to share that working with UFD we began addressing a backlog of requests for tree trimming, as well as dead tree and stump removal. Last weekend, this work began with trimming five trees and removing nine dead trees that posed a safety danger in Sylmar.
As we remove dead trees, we continue to supplement our tree canopy, adding trees to green our community. To learn more about our efforts in maintaining our urban canopy, please call my Pacoima office at (818) 485-0600, Sylmar office at (818) 756-8409, or Sunland-Tujunga office at (818) 352-3287.
