What are City Trees, how do I know if the tree in front of my house is a City tree or is my tree to maintain?
Trees, shrubs and other landscape growing along right-a-ways are the responsibility of the adjacent property owner. The relevant city code is "Chapter 8.40 TREES AND SHRUBS". The City maintained trees are in medians and along major thoroughfares, there are very few residential neighborhoods with city maintained trees.

All weed abatement for Fire Safety is performed prior to June 1 each year. No requests or questions related to our weed abatement program will be responded to prior to June 1. The program is designed to meet Contra Costa County minimum weed abatement standards. If a higher standard is desired we allow interested parties to provide enhanced weed abatement services through our Adopt-a-Spot Application Form.
