Does the City respond to trees obstructing sidewalks, driveways, and traffic signs?

The Department of Public Works will remove the lower branches on trees maintained by the City in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, signs, and pedestrians.  Tree branches over roadways are removed to a height of 15 feet, and to a height of ten feet over sidewalks and pathways.  All branches within 6 feet of a structure are also removed when requested.  Trees on private property that are causing problems are the responsibility of the homeowner.
