I'm in somewhat of a mess. I won a bid to keep up the three entrences to a sub-division. Part of the bid is pruning the crepe myrtle trees around the entrences to the subdivision. It turn out that some and maybe all the crepe myrtles are on city right of way. The city has a tree ordinance that makes it illegal to cut, in any manner, trees on right of way without a permit. You have to be an arborist to get the permit. I didn't pick up on this law until the city sent all landscaping companies a copy of the ordinance after a landscaper got fined a few weeks ago for pruning on right of way. I got my copy today. The President of the homeowners assoc. swears its ok because "the guy trimmed them last year". How would you handle this? Do I need to just pull out?
