Does the township cut or trim trees in the right of way (ROW)?
The township has responsibility for the ROW along township-maintained roads. On occasion, we may have to trim or cut a tree if drivers' vision could be obstructed or if low hanging branches could pose a problem during a heavy snow or ice storm. Often homeowners are aware of problem trees and take steps to correct their obstruction. When that does not occur, the township will do the cutting back.
