Shrub & Tree Trimming

Trimming Information & Regulations

Bushes, shrubs, vegetative overgrowth, and tree limbs that encroach or overhang sidewalks, streets, or alleys adjacent to private or public property must be trimmed to a minimum of 3 feet from the edge of curb, 14 feet above the surface of the roadway, and 9 feet above the sidewalk.

Disposal of Debris

Leaves, yard trimmings, tree branches, fallen trees, brush piles and all other yard waste must be removed and disposed of properly. Limbs bundled in maximum 4 foot lengths and weighing less than 70 pounds may be placed at the curb for pickup by weekly trash service. A free burn permit may also be obtained at City Hall or online for the safe burning of yard waste, unless a burn ban is in effect due to dry conditions or poor air quality. Burning regulations must be followed to ensure the safe burning of yard waste.
