Residents are responsible for the trimming of trees located on their property, to the center of the alley, and in the parkway (the area which extends from the property line to the curb or street pavement edge). You may contact a professional landscaping or tree trimming service to assist you with the trimming. Tree branches and limbs may be taken to the Abilene Brush Center located at 2149 Sandy Street off of East Highway 80 for recycling. This service is free for Abilene residents. To report tree limbs touching electrical lines, call American Electric Power (AEP) at 1-877-373-4858; to report tree limbs touching telephone lines, contact your telephone service provider.
