What happens if somebody illegally trims or removes a Valley oak tree?

Any violation of the ordinance constitutes a misdemeanor and is punishable by conviction and/or a fine. It could also include the City’s Costs and attorney’s fees in prosecuting the matter in addition to doubling the in-lieu mitigation amount indicated in the Oak Tree Mitigation Policy. The majority of violations reported to the City are reported by watch dog citizens or adjacent neighbors.
