City Tree Pruning

March 6th, 2018

City contractors will be performing street tree pruning starting mid-March. The goals are to provide clearance over streets and sidewalks and to maintain the health of our city trees. Trees will be pruned to the tree ordinance’s standard of 8 feet clearance, except young trees that will be trained over several years. Most trees recently pruned by Delmarva Power contractors will not be pruned. The area to be pruned is the first three blocks of South Rehoboth and Virginia, Olive, Maryland, and Baltimore Avenues.
