According to Councilmember John D’Amico, The City of West Hollywood is set to start tree trimming a week from Monday.
Sunset Boulevard Tree Trimming
It’s that time of year again when we begin our annual grid pruning process starting off with the trimming of trees along Sunset Blvd. on Monday September 18, 2017. West Coast Arborists, the City’s contractor, will be doing the work. Each day, trimming will start at 8:00 a.m. and will end by 3:00 p.m. The Westbound lanes will not be affected until after 10:00 a.m. in order to minimize the disruption to morning traffic.
When Sunset Blvd. is completed, the following commercial areas will be trimmed in this order: Beverly Blvd., Santa Monica Blvd. and then other remaining arterial streets. Following trimming of the commercial areas, residential trimming will commence and is expected to continue through February.
In an effort to help the residents, business community and daily commuters plan for the upcoming tree trimming the following steps will be taken:
“No parking” signs will be placed a minimum of 24 hours in advance of the work. The signs will reflect the scheduled trimming activities for each day and will be broken down into two time segments, before noon and after noon. The “No parking” signs will reflect these times. Parking spaces will be re-opened as soon as possible after work is completed.
Door hangers or postings on trees will be placed a minimum of 72 hours in advance of residential tree trimming activities.
Electronic message boards will be placed at strategic locations several days before trimming, and during trimming activities to allow commuters the option of changing their route.
Notification of trimming activities is also posted on the City’s website, cable TV, and other social media outlets.
Please feel free to contact me with your questions or concerns. We look forward to a successful completion of this project.
Basically, between the Santa Monica crosswalk construction and tree trimming, if you want to get around WeHo the next few months you’re better off walking.
