Tree Maintenance

Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of trees on their properties, including the curb areas.   This is beyond the scope of the HOA as both sidewalks and curbs fall under public ownership, managed by Middletown.  Yet, upkeep of the area, including the sidewalk, the landscaped space between the sidewalk and road, including trees, and the stretch from the property line to the curb, is the responsibility of the property owner located adjacent to these spaces.  This is in accordance with Middletown’s Code of Ordinances – an excerpt of which appears below.  

In addition, lot owners can submit a complaint directly to Middletown by clicking on the following link:
