Trees & Brush
Whiting Woods is home to a large variety of
plant and animal life.
Much of the charm associated with Whiting Woods is due to the many
varieties of tree and plant life. Our Properties, streets and surrounding
Verdugo mountains contain many varieties of indigenous trees that are
protected by various city ordinances.
It is strongly recommended that you familiarize yourself
with these trees, trimming seasons and ordinances before undertaking any trimming, clearance
or property improvements.

Brush Clearance is also an annual concern in the Woods. Each
year the Glendale City Fire Department launches a fire safety campaign. The
purpose of which is to provide property owners with a reasonable safe zone free
of readily combustible fuel.
Home owners are notified of the Defensible
Space Concept Guidelines and required to
comply. Otherwise, the city may conduct the service and submit a bill for
services to the property owner.\
