Low hanging tree branches can delay response times of firetrucks during an emergency. These branches can also cause damage to trash trucks, school buses, firetrucks, and other large vehicles. It is the responsibility of anyone owning, leasing, claiming, occupying, or having supervision or control of any real property; to keep the trees trimmed. Pursuant to City Ordinance if any portion of the tree or tree limbs are growing at a height less than fourteen feet (14') above the pavement of the roadway or seven feet (7') above the pavement of the sidewalk, or if any portion of the tree or tree limbs are growing in a manner that interferes with or causes an obstruction to motorist using the roadway. Please use a reputable trimming company, and make sure they measure the trees according to ordinance.
