(Washington, D.C.) The District Department of Transportation’s Urban Forestry Administration (UFA) is continuing to remove downed street trees and branches from right-of-ways and houses as Pepco resolves downed wire situations.  Over the next few days, UFA will focus on removing tilted stumps and generating work orders for sidewalk repairs where fallen trees have caused significant damage.

 If anyone is aware of remaining tree hazards blocking roads, sidewalks, or alleys, as well as public trees against buildings, please call 311 or submit a service request at If there are wires involved, please call Pepco’s emergency line at 202-872-3432.  

UFA also asks that residents withhold requests for routine tree inspections until Tuesday, September 6 to allow staff to focus on completing the storm related clean-up.
