Due to heavy ice and snow build up on tree branches, several tree limbs have snapped off covering sidewalks throughout out the city of Marshfield. Please stay away from any fallen trees and or wires for your own safety.
If a tree is located on your property that has fallen down and crosses the sidewalk, it’s the responsibility of the property owner to make sure the tree isn’t blocking the sidewalk. If the tree is located on the terrace and it falls down, it’s the responsibility of the City. A terrace means the portion of any street right-of-way lying between the roadway edge of the public sidewalk or trail, if any, and the curb or the shoulder of the traveled roadway. If there is no sidewalk or trail, the terrace includes the entire area from the property line to the curb or the shoulder of the traveled roadway.
