Cleveland Tree Removal: Thinking About the Big Picture

Tree Removal Company in Cleveland Ohio
Thinking about removing a tree in Cleveland? Tree removal rules are not as cut and dry as you may assume, so make sure to ask the big questions before making your move. To you, a tree might hold sentimental value, may look nice with your landscaping, may provide shade, produce flowers or fruit, or maybe it’s just a tree to you. From a legal standpoint, however, trees can be seen as liabilities, property, or a special preserved species.

Whether you are looking to clean up the landscape of your Cleveland home, making preventative changes, or getting emergency tree removal, it is probably best to let your neighbors know as a courtesy. It is important to think ahead about tree removal to avoid a potentially messy yard or messy neighbor relationship. The following are examples of situations to think about when a tree becomes a liability:

  • A strong storm just hit Cleveland and severely damaged a tree that is located on your property, but overhangs your neighbor’s property. While your property is unscathed, your neighbor’s property has noticeable signs of damage.  You may, or may not be, be responsible for the damages caused by the occurrence.
  • Similarly, if a dead or weak tree from your property has fallen onto your neighbor’s property, it might be on you to fix the damages.
  • If a tree sits on a shared property line with your neighbor, both parties may both own the tree equally.
  •  If a tree is situated on your neighbor’s property, but the branches are on your property, you may have permission to cut the tree.

Please contact your local council for the latest rules and regulations regarding tree removal. You may even find that you need a permit to remove a tree or a tree on your property is classified as a protected species. Again, these concerns are all dependent on the tree laws in your specific area.
