Any tree growing in a street right-of-way is a county-owned tree. Note that it is not always obvious where the street right-of-way ends and private property begins. The line can be several feet into a front yard beyond the edge of the sidewalk or street. The county is responsible for the health and maintenance of county-owned trees and the Department of Transportation is the agency in charge. Permits are required to do anything that impacts a county-owned tree.
