FAQ: Landscaping

Can I plant/remove/trim a tree in the public right-of-way?

These are public trees and are cataloged/maintained by the Forestry Department. If they need maintenance then call city or power company

My neighbor’s trees are going over the property line- can I prune these limbs?

Legally this is a civil matter between you and your neighbor. We encourage you to discuss the issue with your neighbor first. Typically a landowner may remove vegetation that crosses the property line or the air space above it.
