The City of Mount Dora Public Works Department will be conducting increased “combined” tree trimming over the next 30-45 days. To increase efficiency, as staff conducts hurricane safety pruning prior to the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane season, we also conduct roadway clearance, crown cleaning, structural, and overall tree health pruning. This prevents multiple trips and provides increased safety in parks and right of ways along with healthier trees. Trimming is conducted in accordance with industry standards and best practices. Motorists and members of the public are asked to stay clear of work areas, and proceed at reduced speed in work zones on City streets. Questions can be directed to Robert Harper, Public Works Manager at 352-735-7100 ext. 1832, Mark DeCosta, Public Works Supervisor at 352-735-7100 ext. 1831, or Public Works at 352-735-7151.
Now is also a great time to consider getting your privately owned trees trimmed in preparation for Hurricane Season. Preventative maintenance trimming can save a lot of headache if a storm should strike and helps protect your establish trees. It can be very difficult to get trees trimmed in time once a storm has set its sights on Central Florida.
Hurricane safety is a community effort. Thank you for your patience and cooperation while staff conducts this important work!
