City makes progress in tree-trimming

February 23, 2018

Throughout the City of Cerritos, there are approximately 28,000 trees on public property.

In 2015, the City awarded a contract to Golden West Arbor Services to trim trees. Recently, Great Scott Tree Service was also contracted in the endeavor with the goal of returning to the four-year-trim cycle, which is recommended by the International Society of Arboriculture.

The total number of City trees trimmed since April 2015 is 12,776, which includes about 300 trees at the Iron-Wood Nine Golf Course. Golden West Arbor Services is expected to trim roughly another 4,800 trees in the current fiscal year. Great Scott Tree Service is expected to trim an estimated 2,500 trees.

The City has also set aside $33,500 for a pine tree inventory to be conducted by Great Scott Tree Service. The company will evaluate each pine tree for height and spread, diameter and tree-condition rating, and will assess the surrounding conditions.
