The Protected Trees of Windsor, CA

Windsor trees

The Town of Windsor has a wide variety of native and non-native trees which give Windsor a unique visual character. Trees are a source of beauty, provide shade and other environmental benefits, enhance property values, create a community identity, and in general, enhance the quality of urban life. We love our trees here in Windsor and throughout Sonoma County and that’s why Image Tree Service in Windsor, CA tries to save trees by helping them to live long, healthy lives.

The Town of Windsor is committed to protecting existing trees and planting new trees. In accordance, the Town has adopted a Tree Preservation and Protection Ordinance, which regulates protection, preservation, maintenance, and removal of protected trees.

Here is a list of protected trees in the City of Windsor:

  • Black Oak
  • Valley Oak
