Heavy, wet snow and wind are causing trees and branches to fall. Lincoln residents are asked to call the Lincoln Police Department's non-emergency number at 402-441-6000 to report fallen trees and limbs that are blocking streets. Community Forestry crews are working to open streets so that snow removal operations can proceed. The first priority is removing trees and limbs from arterial streets, and the second priority will be removing trees and limbs from residential streets.
If branches are down on sidewalks or in the public right of way between the sidewalk and the curb, residents are asked to call the Community Forestry phone number 402-441-7035, or e-mail the location of the tree debris to firstname.lastname@example.org. Community Forestry staff will begin removing street tree debris after priority work to open streets is completed.
