Some trees in Los Angeles have become diseased or weakened by drought and are dead or dying. The City works to proactively remove these trees, weakened root, trunk, and branch structures on dead or dying trees are more likely to topple during high winds, posing a threat to vehicles, pedestrians, and homes. Additionally, trees that lean into the parkway and therefore pose a substantial risk to passing cars and trucks may be removed for public safety.
What are some other reasons a tree might need to be removed?
