Brush Overhanging Public Areas

Brush Overhanging Public Areas
  • Trees, hedges and shrubs planted on private property and growing near public sidewalks, alleys and streets can become a hazard to pedestrians and may damage vehicles.
  • Owners are required to trim these trees, hedges and shrubs to a height of seven feet over sidewalks and to a height of fourteen feet over alleys and streets.
  • Each year, the Borough will inspect these areas and notify owners where trimming has not been done.
  • If the work is not done after notification, a complaint may be filed with the District Justice.
