Brentwood’s Forestry Services maintains trees on public right of way, in parks and on other public properties.
After a storm, crews will clear streets, sidewalks, curbs and parks of city-owned, downed tree limbs on an emergency basis. The City is responsible for the removal of limbs from publicly owned trees only. Trees on private property are maintained by the owners. Property owners must dispose of any debris from privately owned trees at their own expense or adhere to the standards set for yard waste pickup.
Yard waste pickup is scheduled for every Wednesday. Please place yard waste in trash containers with lids or in paper yard waste bags. Branches and tree limbs that won’t fit into trash containers or yard waste bags should be cut into lengths not more than four feet and placed in bundles no larger than two feet in diameter.
Branches or tree limbs that have fallen because of storms should be placed at the curb for City pickup as soon as possible following a storm. Bundling is not required.
To report damage to public right-of-way trees or limbs blocking streets, contact the Parks & Recreation office, 314-963-8689.
