Tree Trimming Public Notice

PUBLIC NOTICE May 2022
Trees located in a street right-of-way, or privately owned trees that contain
branches that extend out over a public right-of-way, need to be trimmed so that
the lowest branches are at least ten feet above a public sidewalk, (or the street
parking if a sidewalk does not exist), and at least fourteen feet above the traveled
portion of a street or alley. This does not require a permit. The City will be
inspecting trees starting approximately June 6 th in the East Forestry District; the
area of town that is on the east side of Grand Avenue and north of the railroad
tracks, to determine which properties have trees that need to be trimmed.
The City of Spencer is requesting that you undertake a visual inspection of your
own property to see if there are branches over the street, sidewalk, alley and
public right-of-way that need to be trimmed. If you have any questions regarding
the administration and enforcement of these and other city ordinances, please
contact City Hall at 580-7200 or check out our website at
