Recently, five newly planted City Street Trees on Virginia Avenue were vandalized when the top of the trees were purposely broken off. Removing the top of a tree greatly affects the ability of the tree to grow to full size. The loss of shade, wildlife habitat and sense of well-being will not be easily replaced. The intention of planting these trees is to create a shaded walkway for students to get to school and back. You can help insure a cool, shady street by reporting any tree concerns to the City Arborist, 408.866.2145. Trimming or removal of a City Street Tree, without proper approval is a violation of the City of Campbell Municipal Code, Section 11.08.090.
