Who is responsible for trimming trees?

Con Ed has the rights to cut trees and branches on their easement. The Town of New Castle has the right to cut trees and branches on town property. Homeowners also have an obligation to maintain trees on their property. Regular pruning and trimming will keep the trees from becoming too top-heavy and prone to falling. Dead and dying trees need to be removed.
