Do I need a permit to plant a tree in the right-of-way or parkway?

No. However, the tree must be pruned to allow safe passage of vehicles and pedestrians, as well as to maintain a safe line of sight. Clearances that must be maintained are:

  • 14 feet 8 inches over roadways
  • 8 feet over sidewalks
  • 3 feet or less for shrubs

Please be aware that any plantings in the public right-of-way may be trimmed by the City to ensure public safety.
