Street Tree Trimming and Removal:
Street Tree Trimming and Removal Anne Arundel County is authorized by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to remove or trim hazardous trees that occupy County-maintained roadside property. State law refers to these trees as "street trees".
More information on State tree laws can be found at http://www.dnr.state.md.us/forests/programapps/newrtlaw.asp. In addition to street tree trimming or removal, resulting tree stumps may also be removed from county-maintained roadside property if the County determines the stump interferes with other work such as sidewalk replacement. In many cases the stump may be allowed to remain on County-maintained roadside property following removal of a tree.
