If you are an adjacent landowner, the vegetation (including trees) along the ditch is your responsibility. Neither ditch companies nor municipalities generally own the land under and along the ditch. Instead, they have prescriptive easements, which allow them to dictate the use of the land within the easement. The ditch companies prioritize the removal of trees and vegetation that impede water flow. The rest is up to you. For more information about ditches, visit our Ditches page for more information.
