Tree Lawn Tree Maintenance

The Forestry division plants, trims and prunes tree lawn trees throughout the City to enhance the look of our neighborhoods. Tree planting takes place in the spring and fall months. Trimming is typically done in the winter months. Many residents take it upon themselves to trim their tree lawn trees to assist the City in our efforts to beautify the streets. Residents in need of assistance should contact the Service Department to schedule tree lawn tree service. Please contact the Service Department at (440) 716-4151 or email

The Forestry division will not trim trees around power lines or cable/phone wires.  Click here for more information.
