Street Tree Ordinance

Street trees are a major asset to Visalia's quality of life. Street trees cool and beautify neighbor hoods, reduce air pollution and save energy. In 2000 the City established a partnership with the Urban Tree Foundation to plant over 3,000 trees in the Downtown and along streets and medians. In 2004 the City Council adopted the Street Tree Ordinance which requires all new commercial and residential development to plant street trees.
