I want to cut down a tree on my property. Do I need a permit?

Permits are required for clearing land, and/or cutting down more than seven (7) trees in any one year. There are exemptions for zoning classifications of agriculture, forestry and mining. Exemptions are also made for certain residential properties, depending on lot size and the type of street the property abuts. Contact Civil Engineering at 371-4831 for more information. No tree may be removed from the public right-of-way (area abutting streets) without a permit from Parks & Recreation. Contact the Urban Forester at 374-8733.
