Do tree removals require a permit?
Any trees that are to be removed as part of a project or are within fifteen feet of the project boundary must be shown on the site plan accompanying the permit application. The City Code requires that any tree removed must be replaced at a certain ratio and each replacement tree must meet a minimum size standard. If a tree is to be removed and there is no building or grading permit required, then a tree permit may be required if the tree is within the front, side, or rear setback adjacent to a public right-of-way, or is within 100 feet of the water (mean high tide). In addition, all tree removals within the historic district are subject to approval by the Historic Preservation Commission.
