Tree Removal

Urban trees improve the quality of life of cities. They contribute not only to the aesthetic beauty of a city, but also provide environmental benefits.

Section 25-56 of the City Code states that it is unlawful for any person directly or indirectly to cut down, destroy, remove or effectively destroy by damaging any tree in the city without first obtaining a permit. This requirement shall apply to all trees 3 inches or larger in diameter at breast height. The cost of this permit is $20.00 and can be obtained from the City’s Planning and Building Department.

Of particular importance is the Southern Red Cedar. Southern Red Cedar trees larger than 2 feet in height or a trunk diameter of 1 inch at the point 3 inches above the ground may not be removed without a permit.

For new construction, a tree survey is required and shall indicate all trees on the lot or lots, and the type and size of each tree. In addition, the footprint and eave of the roof of any proposed new structure(s) shall be indicated on the survey.

For existing structures, bright orange tape will be provided to the applicant to indicate the tree or trees proposed to be removed. There is a space provided on the application to indicate a reason for the removal of a tree or trees.
