A: A Missouri attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. You'd probably get the most reliable guidance from an attorney or lawmaker familiar with the specific region. The requirements you describe are often governed by local ordinances, in addition to any state laws that might apply. They could differ by region in their level of detail. But at the very least, counties that have such laws generally include something to the effect that trees, vegetation, shrubs, or other greenery must not block sidewalks and/or must not create a traffic hazard by blocking visibility. How specific the ordinances are could depend on the town. Good luck
