Maryland Roadside Tree Law

Before Trimming or Removing a Roadside Tree

Before a roadside tree is trimmed or cared for in any way, a Tree Care Permit must be obtained from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Forest Service. A roadside tree is any tree that grows all or in part within a public road right-of-way. A permit is also needed to plant a tree within the public road right-of-way.

Any work (including the removal of a tree having a permit) performed on a street tree must be done by a Licensed Tree Care Expert.

When tree care is performed on a roadside tree without a permit, a fine may be assessed or more severe actions taken by the Department of Natural Resources.
