In many cases, the same tree covers sidewalks on the residential side, which require a 9-foot clearance, shown in gray on the left side of the diagram. So maintaining those trees, which everyone regards as desirable assets, is a shared responsibility; the Township does the street side maintenance while homeowners handle the property side.
Annually, our contractor will do the trimming along the neighborhood's street rights-of-way under the following conditions:
- Prior to the annual paving program, as needed
- Prior to the annual snow removal,as needed
- For sight distance, as needed for safety
If you would like to trim along the sidewalk on your property side please contact any tree specialist of your choosing.
