A non-development related tree removal permit is required to remove a tree growing on public or private property, including front and back yards.

City-owned trees on City lots or in public rights of way are also subject to the permit process unless they are an immediate hazard.

The minimum fee for a non-development related tree removal application is currently $434.20.
