Trees and Landscape Maintenance
The City of Tracy maintains City owned trees in non-landscape districts. The tree maintenance program involves the inspection, preservation, trimming, removal and planting of trees along City streets and City property.
One of the reasons for Tracy's high quality of life is the way it looks: our neighborhoods have beautiful landscaping, parkways, neighborhood parks, natural flood control channels, and walking paths. And our new business parks have enhanced green space, too.
Tracy's Landscaping and Lighting Districts maintain 30 mini parks, over 200 acres of landscaping, over 20,000 street trees, landscaped channel ways, and bike trails. The District's source of funding is the assessment that property owners pay with their property tax bill.
The extensive landscaping, lighting, and local parks within the Districts are assets to our community and to individual property owners. The parks and other green areas contribute to a sense of community pride. They provide places for our families to gather, participate in outdoor programs, and to wander and enjoy the natural beauties of our area.
The street lighting and flood channels help keep Tracy a safe place to live and work. An investment in these services and improvements is also a very personal investment since they add to our local property values.
