Boulder officials are reminding residents that broken limbs on private property must be removed by their owners because the city will not be conducting a tree limb cleanup for these branches.

“If limbs from private trees have been placed in streets or other public rights of way, community members should remove them from these areas,” according to a news release.

Residents may dispose of branches that measure under 6 feet long and 3 inches in diameter in or beside curbside compost bins for pickup. Larger branches should be disposed of at Western Disposal, 5880 Butte Mill Road.

The city has cleaned up 64 broken branches from public trees as of May 27, and has identified a total of 230 branches to be dealt with. Branches on public streets and sidewalks that are smaller than 10 inches in diameter should be disposed of by community members, while larger branches from public trees will be disposed of by the Parks and Recreation Forestry team.

Residents who identify trees blocking the public right of way should alert the city for cleanup at
