Why is Gilroy Removing Trees?

Why is Gilroy Removing Trees?

The urban forest, consisting of approximately 18,000 trees, located throughout the City of Gilroy is one of the most prized attributes of our town.  These trees are watched over and maintained by the City of Gilroy.  The City, as a regular course of maintenance, determines which trees are diseased or dying and once identified, determines the best course of action for maintaining the health and safety of our residents and the health of the urban forest.  Due to recent years of drought followed by intense rains, it was determined that 235 of our trees were in such poor condition that they posed an immediate threat to the safety of our residents and to the continued health of the urban forest.  In an effort to protect our residents from falling trees and to protect the healthy trees from disease, efforts are underway to remove these trees.  The good news is that with recent budget approvals, the City has plans to replant 95 trees each year for the next 5 years, effectively planting 475 trees and more than replacing the trees removed.  We appreciated your continued patience as crews go about this work.  And as always, please slow down and be safe when you see our crews out at work.
