Trees: Trimming/Pruning

Due to safety concerns for larger vehicles (buses, fire trucks, delivery trucks etc.), and as a courtesy to the pedestrian and vehicular traffic, street-side tree trimming needs to be routinely performed by the property owner. This also permits the proper maintenance of roads. To reduce the frequency of pruning, trees should be generally pruned beyond the curb or, to the edge of the right of way or, or a minimum of 3’ from the edge of the paved road surface maintaining a minimum clearance of 12’ above the road surface. Clearance above sidewalks should be a minimum of 8’ above the sidewalk surface.

The Fire Chief has turned over a list of properties with trees that are hanging too low into the streets. Letters will be going out to property owners soon. Please check your property and if you fall into this category take care of your trees/overgrowth as soon as possible. (On another note, sidewalks should be cleared for people to be able to easily pass through as well.)
