What are Tree Permits?
Tree permits are official documents that allow individuals or organizations to cut down trees in a specific area. These permits are typically issued by local government agencies and are required for any tree removal, whether it is for personal or commercial purposes. The purpose of these permits is to regulate and monitor tree removal to ensure the preservation of the environment and public safety.
When are Tree Permits Necessary?
A tree permit is a written authorization from the town or city that allows a person to perform activities on and around a protected tree.
Common actions that may require a tree permit include, but are not limited to:
- Removing (cutting down) tree(s) on your property
- Pruning more than 25% of a protected tree’s canopy on your property
- Pruning or Removing City-owned tree(s)
- Excavating within the Tree Protection Zone (critical root zone) of a protected tree
- Operating construction equipment & vehicles within the Tree Protection Zone (critical root zone) of a protected tree
Not all trees are protected and not all municipalities protect trees. Depending on where the property is located and what your objectives are for the trees, a tree permit may be required by your town or city. Properties that fall within Conservation Authority Lands, Heritage Lands or Ravine & Natural Feature Protection Lands will have greater tree protection rules and additional requirements.
How to Obtain Tree Permits?
The process of obtaining tree permits varies depending on the location and type of tree. In most cases, you will need to submit an application to the local government agency responsible for issuing tree permits. The application will require information such as the location of the tree, the reason for removal, and the type of tree. Some areas may also require an inspection of the tree before issuing a permit.
