Tree pruning to begin in January

Post Date:December 19, 2018 8:00 a.m.
Each year the City of St. Louis Park hires a licensed tree service to prune a portion of the city’s boulevard trees. This rotational pruning takes place January through March. The city-hired tree service contractor, S&S Tree and Horticultural Specialists, will start the first week in January 2019 finishing the Birchwood Neighborhood, then moving into the Lenox and Bronx neighborhoods. They will prune through the end of March 2019. This work is intended to improve the health, safety and function of boulevard trees; each boulevard tree is pruned once every nine years. View the tree trimming map to see when pruning will occur in your neighborhood.

Property owners are responsible for the full cost of pruning trees on private property, and may only use tree services licensed by the city. By licensing tree contractors, the city is assuring its property owners that these companies have adequate insurance and qualifications to perform safe and professional tree work. Pruning of trees is strongly recommended during tree dormancy, November through March. View a list of licensed tree services.
