The Community Forest Management Program

Why put so much time and thought into our city's trees?

When planted with forethought, trees...

  • Serve as sound barriers
  • Reduce heat islands
  • Reduce soil erosion and runoff
  • Release oxygen into the atmosphere
  • Absorb carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses
  • Increase the aesthetic value of the neighborhood
  • Increase property values by 7-20 %
  • Provide habitat for wild animals

However, trees can also be destructive and expensive, creating problems with:

  • Concrete and asphalt cracking/lifting
  • Sewer line infiltration
  • Utility line grounding
  • Falling branches, messy fruit/flowers, etc.

Ensuring Fullerton gets maximum benefits from our city's trees with minimum hazard, maintenance, and cost requires careful planning. With that in mind, the Community Forest Management Plan began in 1995. Below is a list of Approved Tree Species.
