After a storm a street tree in front of my home came down and lost a huge branch. When is the Township going to clean it up and take it away?
Street/Shade trees is the responsibility of the property owner in Whitehall Township. It is your responsibility to remove or hire a licensed contractor to remove the debris per Article XVII of the Township code relating to the Shade Tree Committee.
I received a letter from the Public Works Department informing me that I need to prune the street tree in front of my home. Its not my tree.
Street/Shade trees, as well as all other trees on or over your property are the responsibility of the property owner in Whitehall Township. It is your responsibility to prune the street tree and maintain a height in underneath so that the school buses, garbage trucks and Township plows have clearance to maneuver per Article XVII of the Township code relating to the Shade Tree Committee.
As well, it is the responsibility to maintain all trees on or over your property. Therefore, if you have a branch overhanging the neighbor's property- if you don't want them to cut it first- you should take care of it!
