Tree Removal

How to know when a limb is the Town's responsibility?
  • All trees in town are the responsibility of property owners and HOAs to keep trimmed up off sidewalks and street traffic.
  • The town will only remove leaning or sick trees if they are in the street, or if a tree actively falls in the street and blocks traffic.
  • Limbs or trees on the sidewalk right of way will be cleaned up by the town.
  • If a tree is caught in power lines, call Duke Power to remove it and restore power.
  • All utility lines are responsible for cleaning up their lines.
If you have any concerns about tree or bush maintenance then please reach out to our code enforcement office here.
