FOR-INQUIRY: Tree Ownership

Property owners are responsible for all trees on their property, including the tree lawn area. 

What if I am not sure if the tree is on my property?

You may need to survey the  property for ownership.

What if my neighbor's tree is hanging over my property?

Indiana law allows the property owners to trim any overhang limbs up to the property line.

This is considered a civil matter between property owners.

If the tree poses a dangerous situation, contact the Forestry Office at 574-299-4766

Am I responsible for trees in the alley?
