Following Sunday’s storm, the city reminds residents how to report downed trees:
* For trees blocking city streets or sidewalks, contact the Lincoln Police Department nonemergency number, 402-441-6000. Do not call 911. LPD is compiling a list of service requests and reporting those to the Community Forestry crews.
* For damage to public trees between the curb and sidewalk, contact Community Forestry at 402-441-7847, ext. 0. Voicemail is available at this number, and residents are encouraged to provide their name, address, phone number and the nature of the problem. Residents can also report damage to street trees at UPLNK.lincoln.ne.gov.
