Property owners are generally responsible to plant and maintain trees and plants in the planter strips along city streets. However, the city does maintain the trees within the downtown area, city parks, and the cemetery. Heber Light and Power prunes trees in the valley near power lines.
The tree ordinance specifies which trees can be planted in the planter strips and where they can be planted in relation to street signs and utilities.
Tree Utah has provided a plan for Heber City's Trees (PDF) which inventories what we have, explores what we want and how to get what we want in terms of residential yard trees and trees in public places.
The links on this page provide additional information on tree planting and maintenance tips, species, and general tree information. You may call the Planning Office at 435-654-4830 for additional information.
