Street tree work beginning first week in March

March 1st, 2019

City contractors will be performing street tree work starting the first week in March. The goals are to provide clearance over streets and sidewalks and to maintain the health of our city trees. 

In order to prune all city trees in the shortest cycle possible, there will be no additional work beyond what has already been contracted. All citizen requests should be made through a tree inspection request form available at City Hall and online at

The primary areas to be addressed are: 

* 1st-3rd blocks of South Rehoboth 

* Pennsylvania, Virginia, Olive, Maryland, and Baltimore Avenues 

* 1st-2nd blocks of Oak Ave., 1st block of Park Avenue 

Please keep streets that crews are working on clear of any parked vehicles and honor any posted NO PARKING signs. Also, please remove any personal items placed in the city ROW. 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we maintain our city trees. Please contact the city arborist at 227-6181 x 206 if you have any questions. 

Private Property Tree and Shrub Maintenance City contractors will not prune any trees or shrubs planted on private property. Property owners are asked to maintain their plants by removing dead limbs and ensuring a clear space of 8 feet above the sidewalk. Plants should be pruned to prevent obstruction of street lights, signage, fire hydrants, and to allow traffic and pedestrian visibility.
