    Description

    The City of Thousand Oaks over the last 20 years has taken aggressive steps to preserve and protect the City's namesake, the oak tree. First adopted in 1972 as an Emergency City Council Proclamation, the City's Oak Tree Ordinance has been considered by some, to be one of the first and toughest municipal native tree preservation ordinances within the State of California. The current Oak Tree Ordinance has undergone twenty years of review and input and has shown to be successful in tree preservation as well as maintaining and increasing community character, quality of development, community image and the quality of life within the City of Thousand Oaks.
