Tree Work Permit

When are Tree Work Permits required?

  • Street trees: A permit is required to plant, prune, remove, or treat any tree or woody plant originating within the public right of way (area located between the curb and the sidewalk) of any street, sidewalk, or alley, or upon other town-owned property within the town without having first obtained a written permit from the Town Forester.
  • Private trees: No permit is required to perform any work on trees located wholly on private properties.
