This is the time of year that is best to trim your trees along the public right-of-way. The City of Hood River is asking for all residents to trim their trees next to the public right-of-way and pile the branches by the trees. Call City Public Works at 541-387-5201 by Feb. 20 with your address and a crew will pick up the branches.
To ensure public safety, all trees planted within or extending into the public right-of-way must be trimmed to a height of not less than nine feet above the sidewalk and not less than 14 feet above the street, curb or alley. The right-of-way line is typically approximately 5 feet behind the curb unless there is a planter strip, and then the right-of-way line will be approximately 10 feet from the back of the curb.
The city notes: If you cannot reach up to these heights, go as high as you can.
