Crews will prioritize removal of trees and limbs from arterial streets, followed by debris removal from residential streets and driveways.
For trees blocking city streets or sidewalks, contact the Lincoln Police Department nonemergency number, 402-441-6000. Do NOT call 911. LPD keeps a list of areas and reports those to the Community Forestry crews.
For damage to other public trees between the curb and sidewalk, contact the City Community Forestry Section at 402-441-7847, ext. 0. Voicemail is available at this number, and residents are encouraged to provide their name, address, phone number and the nature of the problem.
Residents also can report damage to street trees at UPLNK.lincoln.ne.gov.
Tree debris on private property is the responsibility of the property owner. For tree debris on private properties, residents can contact their refuse haulers or take the debris to the city's North 48th St. Transfer Station, 5101 N. 48th St. For more information, visit lincoln.ne.gov (search: landfill).
