Tree Trimming

The Waverly Leisure Services and Public Services Department's staff trims the City right-of-way for clearance during the winter months. This typically occurs from January to April, as weather allows. Crews focus their efforts on a specfic District each year. The map below shows the District Divisions.

Any tree hanging over the sidewalk or street will be trimmed in accordance to the Waverly City Code which states: "trees should be trimmed so that all branches will be at least(16) feet above the surface of the street and at least (8) eight feet above the sidewalks." Trees that are on private property are also covered by the same City Code in terms of clearance.  Please have vehicles removed from under the trees while trimming is taking place.

In 2023-2024 crews are working in District 6, which is in the East area of the City. 

If you have questions regarding this process, please contact the Leisure Services Department at 352-6263.  Thank you for your cooperation!
