Many types of trees within our city are protected and cannot be removed without a permit. It pays to check first. A fine can be assessed for removing a protected tree without a permit. Unless specifically listed as an "unprotected tree", any tree that has a diameter of six inches or more is protected and may not be removed except as provided in Section 34-425 of the Land Development Code (PDF). To remove a protected tree, please submit a Tree Removal Application (PDF) to our department for review. If the proposed tree meets the criteria for removal, a tree removal permit will be issued accordingly.
