Parks prunes established street trees on a neighborhood–by–neighborhood basis. This process allows us to prune a portion of the street trees in each community board every year.
We do not take routine pruning requests, but immediate pruning requests are accepted via our tree service request system (or call 311) for conditions including:
- Damaged and/or dead limbs
- Broken hanging limbs
- Interference with a traffic signs or signals
- Street or sidewalk blocked
If the tree is entangled in electrical wires, our crews cannot prune the tree because of safety concerns around high voltage power lines. Please contact your power utility company as they are under permit from Parks to handle these conditions.
Our partner organization Trees New York certifies residents as volunteer Citizen Tree Pruners who are allowed to prune street tree limbs in accordance with City regulations. To find out more about this program or connect with Citizen Pruners in your community, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (212) 227-1887.
