Trees in Public Right-of-Way

For trees located in the public right-of-way, the Street Department will assess if a tree needs to be removed due to damage, disease, or otherwise dangerous condition. The public right-of-way is between the sidewalk and the street. If it is determined the tree needs to be removed or trimmed, the Street Department will make arrangements for the work to be done. Trees that are located on private property are the property owner’s responsibility. If there is no sidewalk, contact the Street Department to confirm if a tree is in the public right-of-way.
