We were glad to see the same contractor who planted our City tree last November return last week to prune off the deer-nibbled branches, remove the guy wire supports and trunk cover, and re-stake the tree to grow upright. Our Golden Rain Tree, the designated tree for our block of Mannakee Street, appears to be thriving, as do our neighbors', all planted between one and four years ago.

If you need to contact the City about your street tree (in the right of way between the sidewalk and street), you can fill out the Street Trees or Park Trees Service Request found here. Pepco numbers may be found here if you have concerns about tree limbs in electric wires, or an emergency involving downed tree limbs and wires.

To find out what the designated City tree is for your block, check the Master Street Tree Plan page. Click on the letter of your street name at the top of that page. For more information about City trees, click the More Info link below.
