The City of Abilene will investigate complaints of dead, diseased, or insect-harboring trees, and will deem it a nuisance when its condition constitutes a hazard to life or property.
Notice of Violation
The City will issue a Notice of Violation giving the property owner 10 days to abate the nuisance. A re-inspection will be made 10 days from the date of the notice. If the property is still in violation, the City may abate the nuisance and the owner will be charged an abatement fee, an administrative fee, and a penalty fee. If the charges remain unpaid after 30 days from the billing date, the City will file a lien on the property and the debt will accumulate interest at 10% per year from the due date until paid.
The City cannot mediate other tree disputes among neighbors. If you wish to report a violation, call 325-676-6241.
