Notice for Diamond Hill Residents from the City Arborist

    City Arborist: A Resource During Construction

    As many are aware, the City of Lexington is working with contractors to update sections of its sewer and water infrastructure. During phases of this construction there may be times where trees and shrubs have to be removed or are in harm’s way. For everyone dealing with construction on their property, I just wanted to reach out and remind everyone that I am a resource of knowledge and consults are free.

    I highly recommend reaching out to me before construction begins on your property so damage can be limited, if possible. During construction there can be situations where trenching, parking of heavy equipment and piling of soil is done within or near the dripline of a tree. These situations can cause damage to the tree. Fencing can (at times) be placed around the dripline of the tree or shrub to keep everyone in their places.

    Public Works would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding while dealing with these necessary disruptions.

    Please feel free to contact me at 540-463-3154 ext. 307 or email me at craney@lexingtonva.gov with any question or concerns.
