How do I know if a tree is a city-owned tree?

Most trees located in the public right-of-way, as explained above, are city trees. If you have a question as to whether a tree is in the right-of-way, you can check the exact dimensions of the right-of-way with the Engineering Division at 408-846-0223 If the tree does not lie within the city right-of-way, the tree is not a street tree. Trees on private streets are not city trees.
