Tree Care and Removal
The Board of Park Commissioners develops and maintains a list
of desirable trees for planting along city streets. The property
owner is responsible for planting, trimming and/or removing
any tree in the tree lawn area, which includes the grassy area be-
tween the sidewalk and curb. Prior to planting, trimming, or re-
moving any tree in the tree lawn area, the property owner must
obtain a permit. Once the permit is issued, the property owner
may choose to do the work themselves or may contact a licensed
arborist to complete the work. To request a permit or list of li-
censed arborists, please call (574) 299-4766. In addition to being
responsible for removing dead or diseased trees from the tree
lawn, the property owner must be concerned about public safe-
ty, and ensure that their sidewalk is not obstructed.
