PROPERTY OWNER: Online Tree Permit Application

  1. DO I NEED A PERMIT?

    In most cases you need a permit to remove a tree in your front yard. A permit is always required to remove, prune or plant a tree near a sidewalk or street.



    CAN I CHOOSE THE TYPE OF TREE TO PLANT?

    You can indicate a preference in the comment box, and we will take your preference under consideration. Urban Forestry staff will ultimately determine species of tree by available planting space and location.



    TREE REMOVAL CRITERIA

    A tree removal permit may be issued if one of the following criteria is met:

    • The tree poses a substantial hazard to people or property
    • The tree is dead, dying or has short life expectancy
    • The tree is seriously diseased
    • The tree is part of a group that is overcrowded
    • The tree has caused extensive utility damage (sewer, water main, power lines,etc.)
    • The tree has caused extensive concrete or property damage
    • The tree has been damaged to the extent that it cannot be feasibly restored
