Per Municipal Code 8.24, the Village of Bellevue is responsible for the planting and maintenance of all street trees in the municipality. The Village has adopted a ten year urban forestry management program to maintain public trees; including regular assessment of their health, safety, & condition, pruning, removal/replanting.
Scheduled tree pruning is planned for the following areas in 2013:
- East of Manitowoc Road / East of Ontario Road / West of Huron Rd (Streets: Bottineau Ct, Warm Springs Ct, Red Lodge Ct, Warm Springs Dr, Eagan Ln, Barley Cir, Wheat Way, Sagebrush, Evening Star, Crystal Springs, Willow Rd, Spica Ln, Eclipse, Antares Ter, Ontario Rd, Altair St, Emory, & Crab Apple Ln)
Common reasons for pruning are to remove dead, dying or diseased branches and/or to remove crowded or rubbing limbs. Trees may be pruned to increase light and air penetration to the inside of the tree’s crown or to the landscape below. Lastly, a tree’s crown may be raised to allow cars, school buses, garbage trucks and snow plows to operate without contacting low hanging branches; causing significant damage to the vehicle and/or tree.
The Village’s public tree population consists of more than 3,500 trees, and more than 30 different species that range in age, size and condition. The Village has been annually awarded Tree City USA status from the Arbor Day Foundation since 2003.

Don't let your neighborhood hydrant remain "undercover". We are asking that you help us by keeping the fire hydrant closest to your residence or business clear of snow. Snow should be removed about three-feet (3') away from the hydrant in all directions and a pathway cleared between the hydrant and the nearest roadway. Exercise caution when shoveling because of the potential for vehicle traffic nearby. Do not stand in the street and be careful not to slip and fall out into the roadway.
The Village is reminding residents to place their garbage and recycling carts in the driveway apron, or shovel an area behind the curb to place the carts.
Public Works plow operators have noticed a number of carts that were placed in the roadway while snow plowing. Having the carts in the road is a hazard to the plow operator and the motoring public by requiring the plow to weave in and out of traffic to avoid the carts. Carts in the road after a snow fall also require additional time and money for cleanup.
If you are out walking and see the bins in the roadway before or during a snowfall, please consider helping our snow plow operators by moving them to the driveway. By keeping the carts out of the street, you will do your part to help increase safety and reduce snow removal costs.
This will be the fourth time in Freeze Fest's history that all outdoor events had to be canceled due to poor conditions. The last time Freeze Fest was canceled was 2012 due to lack of snow.
