Perhaps the residents there have found an effective way to keep people away from their property. Also, it's "ginkgo."

 Is it on city property (i.e. the parkway) or private property?  If city property, call the city and ask that it be cut down... that may require going through city council.  I remember about 10 years ago, a resident of the 3rd ward wanted a ginkgo tree cut down and it had to go through city council.
 
  If it is private property, they could get it cut down themselves, although permits from the city may be required to make sure cutting it down does not affect wires, etc

For the benefit of residents who may find themselves in a similar predicament, can you please say what happened that finally persuaded the city to take action?

Numerous phone calls to maintenance department always leaving  a message never speaking to anyone. After many calls a tag was found on my mothers door. Never got to the city council, who ever came out saw the mess and stink.City must have many complaints, this is the first time we got a respons!
