HERITAGE TREEs

BE KIND TO YOUR TREES

Our mature trees were stressed by five years of drought. You can help them out by watering them with a soaker hose once a month through the hot summer.

Your trees will love you for it.

 

Mountain View’s City Code Chapter 32, Article II, defines a “Heritage Tree” as any tree that has a trunk with a circumference of forty-eight inches (48”) or more measured at fifty-four inches (54”) above natural grade. Multi-trunk trees are measured just below the first major trunk fork.

For more information, please refer to the Heritage Tree Ordinance and Heritage Tree Ordinance Amendment.

Three species are considered “Heritage” if they have a circumference of twelve inches (12”) measured at fifty-four inches (54”) above natural grade:

  • Quercus (Oak)
     
  • Sequoia (Redwood)
     
  • Cedrus (Cedar)
