City Tree Trimming

posted in Leisure Services on January 3, 2024

The City of Waverly Leisure Services and Public Services staff are currently trimming trees in the city right-of-way for clearance. This will continue over the next several months. Crews are working in District 6 in the East area of the city. 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 during this time. Thank you for your cooperation.

In addition, City crews will also be trimming trees, bushes, shrubs and other vegetation for width and height clearance in ALL alleyways in ALL districts.  This too will continue for several months.

If you have questions regarding this process, contact Leisure Services at 352-6263.
