Shade Tree Ordinance

The Shade Tree Ordinance specifies the location of trees between the curb and the sidewalk (tree lawn) in relation to intersections, signs, and streetlights. The ordinance also specifies the heights of branches over streets and sidewalks and the varieties to be planted. The ordinance requires that a Tree Permit (no charge) be received from the Department of Public Works prior to planting or removing trees in the tree lawn.
