Hazardous Tree Removal

This year you may have noticed a decline in the health of ash trees or other trees on your private property.  City staff continues to remove public trees on the street right of way (the area between the sidewalk and curb) that are or will soon be a hazard. For the protection of you and your family, hazardous trees are required to be removed from private property as well.

City staff is currently establishing a database of trees on private property that are or will become a hazard. Letters will be sent to the property owners regarding the condition of the trees and the responsibility of removal before they become dangerous to their own or adjacent property. 

If you have hazardous or declining trees on your property, you are encouraged to contact a tree removal company to assess the health of your trees and/or make arrangements for them to be removed. The City of Cedar Falls is not able to provide tree removal for private property owners. For more information contact the Public Works Department at (319) 273-8629.
