Tree Trimming

The Public Works Department, City Forester and Code Enforcement Official would like to draw your attention to the trees in your yard that overhang the curb and gutter and ask that you trim those to a minimum height of nine feet (9’) above the curb and gutter and so that no branches overhang onto the roadway.

Beginning in October, city employees will be around the city trimming those trees that have not been trimmed. The trimming done by the city will be for functionality and may not be aesthetically pleasing. Residents are asked to comply with the requested trimmings for the best results. The green waste facility is open for the disposal of your trimmings on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pick up a punch pass at the city office during business hours. We greatly appreciate your cooperation. City Code 11-8D-5-A2: “Landscaping materials shall be contained so as not to spill into the public right of way.” City Code 11-8D-5-A3: “…trees in the park strip shall have a minimum height of seven feet (7’) for the lowest branches of the tree when they extend above the curb or sidewalk.” City Code 11-8D-5-A4: “Any damage to city property created by vegetation will be the responsibility of the property owner.” City Code 11-10-11-A: “…no fence, hedge, or other similar structure shall be erected in any required front yard of a lot to a height in excess of three and on-half feet (3.5’)
