Wheat Ridge city code is very specific about care of trees and shrubs. It’s the property owner’s responsibility to remove trees and shrubs or portions thereof that endanger safe use of public areas or utility easements. If a property owner fails to correct the problem after receiving a notice from the city forester, the city performs the work and invoices the property owner for the cost.

It’s against the law to prune, remove or treat plants in the public right-of-way without a permit from the city. The city code also addresses damaging trees and shrubs on public property. You guessed it: it’s not okay.
