Does the city own all the trees in Sugar Land?

No.  The city is responsible for the trees along certain roadways, ditches, and highway frontage roads within the city as seen on this map.  Trees along other major thoroughfares are owned and maintained by adjacent homeowner’s association (HOA) or property owner’s association (POA).  Trees located adjacent to a private business or residential property, are the responsibility of the owner.
