Public Works begins right-of-way tree pruning throughout town Sept. 11

Public Works will begin trimming trees and vegetation located on Town right-of-way property on Sept. 11. Crews will begin pruning on the southeast side of Christiansburg and work their way across town. Pruning is expected to continue until Oct. 6.

Crews will only prune trees and vegetation on Town right-of-way property. Right-of-way is designated as public land for streets, sidewalks, utilities and other public uses. The right-of-way typically extends several feet from the edge of a street but can vary across town. If a tree or vegetation is partially located on private property, crews will notify homeowners before pruning.

This project will remove low-hanging branches and brush that obscure the roadway, improving safety and visibility for motorists. Trimming can also help improve tree health.

In some circumstances, temporary lane closures may be required to ensure pruning can be completed in a safe manner. 

If you know of overgrown trees or vegetation on Town right-of-way property, please email info@christiansburg.org.
