Tree Work along ditches (creeks)

As part of our Mission to prevent flooding and protect water quality we inspect 20% of the public ditch system each year. Part of this inspection includes identifying trees needing removal from the channel: downed trees,hazardous leaning trees, bulk woody debris.

We hire a Company to do this tree work. In some areas the tree service may need to access the channel through private property and may need to create small paths across lawns to maneuver equipment. Material removed from the channel will be neatly piled in inconspicuous areas or hauled off site. Our contractor will work to minimize disturbance to properties and will reasonably repair any damages.

There is no direct cost to property owners.
