Is the tree in front of my house a city tree?
In most cases, any tree situated between the sidewalk and curb is a city owned tree. There are circumstances however where the city right of way extends past the sidewalk making trees on the inside of the walkway city trees. It is always a good idea to check with the city to determine if a tree in fact is a city tree. Contact the city at (815) 844-3396 or complete a work order through this web site and someone will come out and verify the right of way line for you.
