All wood removed from trees located in either public rights-of-way or public
areas shall be disposed of at the discretion of the Forester who has complete
authority for the disposal of said wood and debris. In the event that the wood
is given to the adjoining property owner, the property owner shall sign an
agreement holding the City harmless.
If the Forester determines that the cost of storage or sale of the wood is
not commercially feasible, he/she may cause such surplus wood to be donated to
such groups or organizations as may be designated from time to time by the
Superintendent of Parks. It shall be unlawful to possess or dispose of any wood
from any tree that has been cut or pruned in violation of the provisions of this
Chapter. Publicly financed and privately financed street improvements under
permit from the City Engineer are excluded from this Section.
