Tree Trimming and Removal

From time to time, the natural growth of a tree will interfere with City signs or impede the view of an intersection. Trees are trimmed in order of request and by budget ability. Call the Public Works office at (435) 734-6615 to make a request.

If a tree within the Public Right of Way or parking strip needs to be removed, make a request for removal by using the Tree Removal Request Form.
