The Landscape Services Division is responsible for the landscape maintenance programs for City properties, including selected public rights of way, parks, City buildings, and parking lots. The Division is also responsible for landscape installation and tree maintenance programs for the City. Tree trimming, irrigation maintenance/repair, fertilization, pest control, and landscape plant and tree installation, is either performed by or managed by this Division. Private contractors are used where appropriate to provide these services under the strict supervision of Division personnel. Inspections for the City's tree removal permitting process are also made by the Landscape Services Division.
