Trees are a valuable community resource and important component of civic infrastructure. The City of Mountain View has been committed to preserving and enhancing its urban forest since 1960 when the City Council established tree care services. Trees are a big part of the City’s identity and provide our community with numerous benefits including:

Energy Conservation

Tree canopies offer shade, add moisture to the air, and limit wind forces.

Improved Air Quality

Trees pull carbon dioxide from the air and reduce pollution.

Preserve Natural Habitat

Trees provide shelter and food for our wildlife.

Reduced Risks of Flooding

Trees pull stormwater into the ground and prevent soil erosion.

Better Quality of Life

Trees beautify neighborhoods and improve mental and physical health.

We appreciate your stewardship and conservation of trees. The future of Mountain View’s urban forest depends on it.
