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.

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)
