Trimming Your Trees

[Forest of Trees]Trees in Euless can provide a lot of beauty and shade, but they are also a potential hazard for fire trucks on their way to an emergency. The windshield of a fire truck can easily be shattered due to a large limb hanging low in the street. Fire trucks are taller than they may appear and require a fifteen foot clearance over the street.

You or your neighbors may have recently received a letter from Euless Code Compliance requesting your help with trimming trees on your property. In the event of a fire or medical emergency in your home, or the home of a neighbor, it is vitally important that your neighborhood is rapidly accessible. It is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain the fifteen foot clearance.

If you have trees that may require trimming, please measure the fifteen foot clearance from one foot behind the curb line.

If you have questions or would like more information, please call the Fire Department at 817-685-1600. Your assistance in this matter is truly appreciated and can have a profound impact on the safety and well-being of you and your neighbors.
