A boulevard tree is any tree that grows with the boulevard right-of-way and are considered property of the City. In a residential area, the boulevard right-of-way varies throughout the City. The right-of-way is determined by specific measurement and location of underground utility lines, like electric and cable. 

Contact the Forestry Department to determine the right-of-way on your boulevard at 952-895-4508.
