City of Upland Urban Forest Management Plan
To register for this in-person workshop please, click here.
Please join the California Urban Forests Council as we present the newly adopted Urban Forest Management Plan for the City of Upland.
The Plan is a roadmap aimed at protecting, enhancing, and maximizing the benefits of Upland's urban forest. The urban forest is generally defined as all the trees, both public and private, in the urban environment. The Plan addresses key issues such as canopy cover, infrastructure constraints, environmental benefits, aesthetics, native habitats, and community vitality. Guided by goals and objectives, the Plan is implemented through actions that range from increased street and park tree maintenance, the Street Tree Advisory Committee, and City Arborist recommendations and directives.

Trimming, Planting & Removal
Tree maintenance for the City of Upland is carried out by West Coast Arborists, Inc. Maintenance is based on previously designated scheduling and the urgency of arising matters. Any additional work taken in is based upon available funding. Should funding become unavailable or should a resident desire to have replant or trimming work done ahead of schedule, the resident can request to have the work done through the Tree Donation Program. For more information about the Tree Donation Program, click here.

One very important part of tree care is watering. However, due to current drought conditions reduced water usage has been mandated. For information about how to care for your trees during drought, please see the documents below.
