No. However, the tree must be pruned to allow safe passage of vehicles and pedestrians, as well as to maintain a safe line of sight. Clearances that must be maintained are:

The City of Oviedo can not provide survey or wetland data for private property located within the City limits. This information is the responsibility of the resident owner and should be obtained from qualified surveying and environmental professionals.
The City of Oviedo does not maintain street lights or electricity service within the City. Depending on the location of the street light within the City limits, there are two different companies that handle street lights (and consequently all power related utilities). A simple way to determine which company to call is as follows:
If you are unsure on which company to call, either company can direct you to the appropriate authority if they are not responsible for the street light. If all else fails, feel free to call the City of Oviedo Public Works Department at 407-971-5668 for assistance.
For either company, please have the exact location of the light pole available. A house address is acceptable as well as the number on the pole (if available).
City Council has approved Ordinance 1257 which provides for relief of utility bill accounts under certain circumstances. Specifically, for residents who have an inadvertent “accident” which results in a high consumption period, relief can be provided if the resident meets certain specific criteria:
If you have had a leak in your house (or on your property) that resulted in a substantially higher water usage and you meet the above criteria, please contact the Water Conservation Officer by phone 407-971-5691 or email. If, after review, your situation meets all criteria, you may be eligible for an adjustment to your water bill.
Please note that the word "adjustment" is used for a reason (as opposed to "credit"). Customers are responsible for 100% of the water that passes through their meter (no matter how it passed through). If an adjustment is granted for a specific utility bill, any use above your previous 12 month's average usage is re-billed at the lowest rate possible (instead of being billed at the "high user rate"). This typically results in a 10-50% reduction in the total balance due, depending on your specific case. Please note, the following situations are not eligible for adjustment:
Although the City cannot recommend any specific company, we are familiar with companies that can provide removal services. Please call 407-971-5681 or 407-371-5668 for more information.
