Do large trees or fences have to be removed?

No, large trees should not be removed. They can remain, but please trim their branches to a height of 8 feet. Other objects that obstruct visibility such as fences, hedges, and large shrubs need to be removed. Objects 18 inches or less in width or diameter are allowed in the intersection visibility area when spaced at an adequate distance to not significantly obstruct the intersection visibility area.
