AnswerThere are specific restrictions about planting trees in the right of way. For homeowners, it is best advised to avoid planting anything in the right of way (swale area) of their front lawns. In general, there is no planting allowed in the right of way (i.e. swales). The details are available in Land Use Article 5 section 2. To read the section, go to our Codes and Ordinances under "Laws and Codes," and go to the Land Use regulations, Article 5.
