2022 Signal Hill Street Tree Master Plan

The urban forest of the City of Signal Hill represents the City’s leadership in sustainability practices and in providing a high quality of life for its residents. In the past decade, a pressing need to adapt to the new normal of drought and fire-risk in Southern California has emerged. The Signal Hill Street Tree Master Plan represents a significant opportunity to evaluate the historic identity of the city’s urban forest and introduce best management practices that will ensure that the existing and new canopy will thrive in longevity.
