Someone is cutting down 5 trees next door, pretty big ones too. Trying to clear land for construction. I was under the impression these are city trees however. Im attaching the GIS picture to show the parcel. They have no city approval for the cut down. Went to talk to them, the tree guy said he was sure it was owned by the landowner bc it is a certain number of feet from the fence. But based on the GIS pretty clear that area represents a sidewalk although there is not a paved sidewalk. Curious if any thoughts on this, do they own those trees bc they own a certain amount of land past their fence?
Edit: I guess images are not allow so here is the imgur: https://imgur.com/a/j880S3K. For context the white throughway is a street, the one next to the red circle is a city street going into an alleyway
