Maintenance of Trees by the Town 

For trees located in the parkway, the Town will remove any tree that creates a hazardous situation or is more than 50 percent dead, and will also remove any dangerous limbs. All other tree problems in the parkway or on your property are a private matter. Citizens will need to contact a private tree service or do their own maintenance. The Town will remove all branches from your curb on your regular collection day that is no more than ten inches in diameter and no longer than four feet.
