City regulations require any tree planted is at least three feet from a property line. We encourage property owners to consider how large a tree may grow in relation to property lines and structures. Tree planting in the boulevard is typically not allowed.

These trees belong to the property owner and the property owners are responsible for the care of the trees. The City will send out notices to residents if trimming of the trees poses hazardous conditions for pedestrians and vehicles, or if they interfere with utilities. If you are unable to take care of trimming, the City will trim the trees and may charge for that service. Please call Public Works at 952.873.6742 if you are not sure if the tree is within the right-of-way.
Emerald Ash Borer has been documented within the City. The City doesn't remove ash trees but we are an information resource.
We recommend you consider planting a variety of tree species that are appropriate for Minnesota climate and disease resistant. Our current list of tree species recommended includes a large selection of species.
We encourage neighbors to research tree/property line issues and work together to resolve. Such issues are between property owners and the City doesn't get involved.
