Trees

The County's contractor, West Coast Arborists, trims County-owned trees. (If you live on a non-incorporated residential street, County-owned trees grow in the parkway - the strip of land between the sidewalk and the street.) As per our contract, WCA follows a pre-determined, high-production schedule to keep tree trimming as cost-effective as possible. We are unable to trim trees strictly for aesthetic purposes. However, we will trim a tree if it presents a hazard, and we are usually able to respond to dangerous situations rapidly.

Irvine Park Trimming may consist of the following:

  • Trimming - removal of limbs blocking streetlights, traffic signals, traffic warning signs and site distance issues at intersections.
  • Elevate limbs blocking public sidewalk or traffic vehicle lanes.
  • Removal of dead wood (dead, storm damaged, or broken limbs).
  • Cut down and remove dead trees.
  • Cut down and remove live trees with a valid permit or work order that has been obtained by the property owner.
  • Removal of stumps (grinding).

How do I determine if a tree is County-owned?

County maintained trees grow in the parkway - the strip of land between the sidewalk and the street. If you are unsure if a tree is on County property, call us at 714-955-0200 and we will either answer your question over the phone or visit the location to determine ownership.

If you think your tree located within County public right of way needs trimming, you may submit a service request or contact the Operations & Maintenance office at 714-955-0200.
