Urban Forestry

Santa Clarita is home to tens of thousands of native oaks which blanket our local mountains, line our streams and add a beautiful presence to our natural landscape. These native oak trees have a long history in Santa Clarita which date back to the 1800’s.

The City’s Urban Forestry operation is responsible for the maintenance of approximately 120,000 trees located throughout the community within the public right of way and each of our 61 LMD Zones.  The Urban Forestry Division is responsible for the proactive pruning of approximately 18,000 annually, responds to more than 2,000 individual requests for off-cycle tree pruning, 600 plus requests for Oak Tree inspections, while planting 300 to 400 new trees each year.  The Urban Forestry Office can be reached during normal business hours at (661) 290-2200  or at (661) 290-2222 on evenings and weekends.
