Tree Removal Application

    USE THIS FORM TO Apply to remove a dead, dying, or diseased tree or a tree that is causing property damage. Trees to be removed as part of a construction project are included on the general building permit application.

  2. Fees

    None

  3. Important Notes

    All healthy, non-invasive trees measuring five (5) inches or greater in diameter at breast height (DBH) are protected trees within the City. Removal should only be considered when no alternatives exist to retain the tree. Permits are issued for tree removal when the tree is dying, diseased, or hazardous to property. If you are not sure if your proposed tree removal fits into one of these categories, please ask staff, who may suggest measures to help preserve the tree or recommend evaluation by a Certified Arborist. Please allow 3-5 business days to process your application.
