What if a tree branch or tree falls down in the roadway?

Even if the city does not own the tree, city crews will come out 24/7 to respond to a concern.  If it is a city-owned tree, even if it is a small branch, the city will remove the hazard.  If it is a privately owned tree, the city will safely remove the tree from the roadway and place it in the yard or ROW of the owner of the tree.  It is the responsibility of the owner of the tree to remove the debris.

Please contact Public Works by dialing 311 or 281-275-2450.
