Councilmember Ryu has led the way in emphasizing the importance of a healthy and robust tree canopy for all Angelenos. Trees serve a key role in our communities and should be preserved if possible and replanted if a tree must be removed. This FAQ serves to explain the factors the City takes into consideration when reviewing whether a tree that is currently posing legal risk to the City, either by blocking pedestrian access, impeding traffic safety, or posing a risk to general public safety, can be preserved or must be removed. This FAQ will discuss some of the options the City looks at to see if preservation is possible and how the city replaces street trees when removal is the only option.
