The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department is asking Lincoln residents to help clear fallen limbs from street trees on public rights of way.
"Last year, our Community Forestry staff had nearly 2,500 calls regarding broken or fallen tree limbs," said Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson. "Handling these calls takes time away from other essential street tree maintenance work, such as trimming and dead tree removal. We really appreciate the assistance of the public in helping us to reduce fuel consumption and equipment operating costs."
