On March 17th, a powerful storm struck our beloved city. The windy conditions knocked over trees, created debris, and left 5-10 inches of rain. Over 1500 requests were made for emergency responses to tree related failures in the public right of way. The Bureau's Urban Forestry Division was quick to respond. Under extreme circumstances, tree crews responded on an average of 0.5 days for the first response with a total completion time of 2.23 days. Clearing the public right of way isn't easy especially when you have trees in the way. Thankfully, the City of Los Angeles can always count on the hard work, responsiveness, and dedication of the Bureau's tree crews.
