Some single-family tree removal in the City only requires a simple notification to the Community Planning & Development Department. Please email us to find out if you require either a notification or permit.
Simply fill out the last page of the Tree Removal Notification Form (PDF) and submit it to Development Services:
If you are removing trees under the hazardous exemption, a Tree Removal Permit and an Arborist Report must be included with your notification form.
If you do not meet the requirements for a tree removal notification, then a permit is required and must be reviewed by the Development Services Department.
Please submit the following:
Note: If a fee applies, it will be assessed at time of permit issuance. See the Land Use Fee Schedule (PDF) (Other section) for current fees.
