You Live in an Urban Forest
The City of West Sacramento has a Tree Ordinance in place to protect our urban forest from practices that serve to permanently damage or remove trees without proper cause, especially those trees classified as Landmark or Heritage Trees. If you are not sure if you do or do not need a Tree Permit Application, we can help answer your questions at (916) 617-4620.
Urban trees provide benefits that are fundamental to our city's livability. Clean air and water, cooler streets and homes, beauty, and wildlife habitat are essential elements to the health and comfort of any city. Simply put, people and trees depend upon each other in many ways. The health of our City and our region is dependent upon the health of our urban forest.
For tips, please see the following guides on how to plant and care for your trees as well as how to prune your young trees for proper structure and form. We support the planting of 5 million new trees in our region by the year 2025.
This is the single tree staking system we provide with every tree we plant and every tree delivered to residents for planting in their own yards. Watch the following video to learn more about these stakes and how their proper use: Single Tree Staking Systems.
