Highland has a contract with a private tree maintenance service to trim trees. The contractor schedules work approximately twice a year. The city’s goal is to trim trees within the city’s right-of-way once every five years. The objective is to maintain the health of the trees and provide vehicle and pedestrian clearances. Utility clearances are done by the utility owners, not the city.
