NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNERS DUTY TO TRIM TREES

The City of Red Oak would like to remind property owners that it is their responsibility to keep trees on, or overhanging the street, trimmed so that all branches are at least fifteen (15) feet above the surface of the street and eight (8) feet above the sidewalks.

Trees hanging too low over street can cause damage to passing vehicles, including emergency response vehicles such as fire trucks and ambulances.

If a property owner fails to keep trees trimmed as required, that property owner may be cited for violating City Code.  Additionally, the City has the right to remove or trim any trees in violation of these regulations and assess the costs of this work against the property.

Your cooperation and assistance is greatly appreciated
