Toledo Talk

Who's Responsible

Need a bit of help here. A huge branch fell out of a tree this afternoon and landed in front of my house. The tree is growing in the grassy area between the sidewalk and the street. Am I responsible for removing this behemoth or is the City of Toledo? Not sure if I need to call the Forestry Division or the Streets Division. Or, do I call a local tree removal service?

The city will come out and get it when you call them...

I believe the city is responsible for all trees planted in a tree lawn, even if you plant them. I would call the Forestry Division first.

Growing up in remember a family who was at great loss due to the city cutting roots around a city tree. . The tree feel in a storm, landed on a vehicle with a family inside. Happened on Asbury road I believe. Back in the 90's.
