Property owners in Denver are responsible for maintaining the city trees within the right-of-way adjacent to their property (the area between the curb and sidewalk.) But don’t go Paul Bunyan on your trees without first being informed. There are currently no requirements for permits to prune trees on private property or public-right-of-way trees. BUT city code requires all pruning of right-of-way trees be done to industry standards. If a right-of-way tree is improperly pruned (topping the tree, for example), the City Forester may deem the tree to be irreparably damaged and the homeowner may be required to reimburse the city of the value of the tree.
