Tree Removal - Charlottesville Downtown Mall


CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The City of Charlottesville Parks and Recreation Division will be removing nine trees on Charlottesville’s Downton Mall. Trees have been selected for removal due to concerns about the health and structural integrity of the individual trees. As protection of life and property are paramount, the City feels it is in the best interest of the public to eliminate the risk of hazard.

Timing of tree work will likely occur in late winter to early spring 2023.

Removal trees will be clearly marked with ribbon, and thus easily identified. The city will be inviting the public to three educational sessions (one Zoom meeting- October 27, and two in-person meetings November 1 and 3, 2022) to address public concerns and answer any questions. Education sessions will focus on specific health concerns associated with the tree removals.
