Property owners are generally responsible to plant and maintain trees and plants in the planter strips along city streets. However, the city does maintain the trees within the downtown area, city parks, and the cemetery. Heber Light and Power prunes trees in the valley near power lines.
The tree ordinance specifies which trees can be planted in the planter strips and where they can be planted in relation to street signs and utilities.
For planting on private property, the Small Trees Booklet (PDF) provides tree species which can fit in small spaces, and Sixteen Uncommon Trees (PDF) provides tree species which aren't planted often in Utah.
Heber Valley is generally considered a Zone 3 or 4 (JPEG) for hardiness in determining which plants or trees will grow in the Valley. Planting Landscape Trees (PDF) and Selecting and Planting Landscape Trees (PDF) provides additional planting information. Pruning Trees (PDF) provides information on how to properly prune trees.
Heber City Tree Plan
Tree Utah has provided a plan for Heber City's Trees (PDF) which inventories what we have, explores what we want and how to get what we want in terms of residential yard trees and trees in public places.
The links on this page provide additional information on tree planting and maintenance tips, species, and general tree information. You may call the Planning Office at 435-654-4830 for additional information.
