Menlo Park has strict guidelines when it comes to working on a “Heritage Tree”


 

A “Heritage Tree” is defined as: 

 

1. Any tree other than oaks has a trunk with a circumference of 47.1 inches (diameter of 15 inches) or more, measured at 54 inches above natural grade

2. Any oak tree native to California has a trunk with a circumference of 31.4 inches (diameter of 10 inches) or more measured at 54 inches above natural grade

3. A tree or group of trees specifically designated by the City Council for protection because of its historical significance, special character or community benefit


 

To Remove a Heritage Tree or prune more than 25% you need a permit from the City of Menlo Park. 

 

To avoid conflict of interest, The city of Menlo Park has a list of Consulting Arborists they require you to hire for an assessment. 

 

NewVista can help with removal or pruning services you need.
