Downtown Tree Maintenance and Lane Closures
The City of San Luis Obispo Urban Forest Services team will be pruning trees Downtown beginning January 31. Work will be done on Higuera Street – between Morro and Nipomo – for two weeks. There will be lane closures from 7 to 11 a.m., a break for lunchtime traffic, and work will resume 1 to 4 p.m. Please allow for extra travel time and be mindful of crews while driving Downtown.
The City’s Downtown core features a large canopy of Ficus trees and the City’s Urban Forester program meets semi-monthly to maintain trees. The City’s Urban Forest team is part of the Public Works department and a team of community member volunteer help their beautification efforts. The City has been recognized for 35 consecutive years as a Tree City USA.
