Is it a private or city owned tree?
Before you undertake any pruning or cutting of a tree in front of your property, you need to determine if it is a city owned tree or yours. The city has varying right of ways from street to street; sometimes even block to block there is a difference. Here are some simple ways to try and determine if it is a city owned tree or a privately owned one.
When in doubt, it is best to call the city to determine if it is a city or a private tree. There are fines for cutting city owned trees. Call 538-2415 for more information.
