I live in the City of Poughkeepsie, NY. In my section of the

Customer Question

I live in the City of Poughkeepsie, NY. In my section of the street that I live on we have sidewalks that are set back from the curb by enough space that their are trees growing in various locations. One such tree is across the street from my property and overhangs the canopy overhangs the road. My question is, is their an obligation on the part of the party responsible for the tree to ensure that sufficient clearance is available for vehicles travelling on the road? In my case I pulled up alongside of this tree with my RV Travel trailer which struck a rather solid limb that caused damage to the trailer. For bridge type clearance the manufacturer says the height is 11 ft 3 inches. Secondly, given the tree location who would be the responsible party, the city or the adjacent property owner?

Thanks

Hi and welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you. I am happy to help.

It is the obligation of the tree owner. Trees obstructing the pavement or road should have adequate clearance for the safe passage of pedestrians and vehicles. The governmental agency responsible for roads should serve a notice requiring the tree owner to prune their trees to clear the obstruction. So, the responsible party would be the owner of land where the tree is; or if you provided notice to the city and they did nothing to rectify the situation (if they did not inform the tree owner), then the city would be responsible also.

Here is the number to the street division of Poughkeepsie for more information or to report the situation:
