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.
