Town code requires a Tree clearance of 14’ over all right-of-way areas

Trees in Roadway

Fall is here and Winter is just around the corner.  Ample rain throughout the Summer has led to healthy but shaggy plants.  The Public Works Department kindly asks that you check your trees and shrubs for clearance over sidewalks and roads.  Town code requires a clearance of 14’ over all right-of-way areas to help with access for snow trucks, as well as emergency vehicles.  This is a gentle reminder that now is a great time to prune your trees to help Town Staff provide excellent snow removal services.  Together, we can make a smooth transition into the upcoming snow season!
