If you are the homeowner that is residing in the home, you are exempt from obtaining a permit. However, please be cautious that if you have a historic or specimen tree you will need to obtain a permit and possibly Commission approval for removal. If you reside in a deed restricted community, you may need to discuss tree removal with the Home Owners Association or property management, as there could be more conditions for approval outside of the City. If you have questions or concerns about needing a permit, please contact the City to discuss the specifics of your property. Commercial properties MUST obtain a Tree Removal Permit and may be required to replace any trees approved for removal.
