Vestavia Hills has been a Tree City USA municipality since 1991, and we are proud of our beautiful landscape of trees. Trees provide many benefits to the community and environment, but they also require responsibility. If you do not find the tree information you need below, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dead/Sick Trees in Right-of-Way
Public Services generally does not remove healthy trees from the right-of-way. If you see a dead or sick tree in right-of-way, call 205.978.0150 or report through the Vestavia Hills Action Center.
Concerns regarding a neighbor’s tree is a civil issue between private parties; the City does not become involved. If you are unable to resolve a tree dispute, you may wish to seek legal advice.
Tree Work by Contractors
Contractors are responsible to remove trees and tree trimmings. Ensure your contractor is aware of this responsibility and also that the contractor has a Vestavia Hills Business License prior to doing work
Limbs & Tree Trimmings
Residents who cut and prune trees should ensure the pieces are cut appropriately and piled separately from other trash for collection. See Waste Collection Guidelines.
