Maintaining Right-of-Way Trees

The property owner/tenant that has trees in the right-of-way (the space between the sidewalk and the street) is responsible for the maintenance of those trees including keeping the trees trimmed so that all branches are at least 15 feet above the surface of the street and 8 feet above sidewalks. 

Please note: If there is a state or federal government state of emergency declaration for the city of Oskaloosa, the city will trim or remove damaged right-of-way trees. In absence of an emergency declaration, it is the responsibility of the property owner/tenant to trim or removed damaged right-of-way trees.

If the property owner/tenant fails to trim the trees in the right-of-way, the city may do so and assess the costs against the property.
