A reminder of Sugar Land’s tree ordinance

reminderSeeing double? Not really. The latest date on a Sugar Land tree ordinance reminder found on a diamond shaped sign close to U.S. 59 at the entrance of the Sugar Lakes neighborhood is intended as a heads up.

It appears that the start date of the inspections was adjusted by the city, first planned near the beginning of the month and now planned for this Saturday. What’s not changed is the importance of checking trees to meet the regulated height in the city ordinance, that’s 12 feet above the street and 8 feet above the sidewalk.

In nonresidential streets with semi-trailer traffic where a tree overhangs, the clear space under the tree is 14 feet above street surface and 8 feet above the sidewalk surface. Trimmed trees provide clearance for vehicles such as fire trucks, ambulances and garbage trucks allowing for a clear view.
