Read the second sentence of the second paragraph:

Google Image Result for http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/laland/images/2008/04/18/dmfissgw.jpg

The LA times blogger indicates that cities don't allow trees to canopy on a street. I just moved into a new area where my neighbor across the street has some gorgeous trees and I'd like to plant the same ones on my side and create the canopy effect. I'm concerned what the city might do.

Does anyone know if the city will ask me to remove my trees? I'm planning on planting 4 Chinese Elms.

I don't know but with the current budget problems, I wonder how high on the list of priorities enforcing tree rules or trimming trees (that assumably don't interfere with utilities) is on the city's to do list.

With city of Los Angeles as far as property code violations, its almost exclusively whether or not your neighbors report you. City inspectors don't go around checking for violations, but if one of your neighbors reports you, they will check it out.
