No person shall allow or maintain any tree on private property in such a way that creates a hazard to pedestrian or vehicular traffic by obstructing vision or impairing necessary clearance, or in any manner endangering the security or usefulness of any public street, sewer, sidewalk, or other public property. Any such private tree allowed or maintained contrary to the provisions of this section is a public nuisance; upon a determination by the City Manager that such private tree constitutes a nuisance, he shall give written notice to the owner of the property upon which said nuisance exists to trim, remove, or otherwise control such tree in such a manner as will abate such nuisance. Failure to comply with such written notice within ten days thereafter is a violation of this section. Such written notice may be given by a personal service of a copy thereof, or by placing a copy of the notice in the United States mail, postage prepaid, addressed to the owner of the property as shown by the last assessment roll of the city.
