City Forestry Permits

Request a Permit to have City Trees Pruned

Due to lack of funding in the 2010 City Budget, there will be no maintenance pruning of street trees and no funding for stump removal. You may choose to have your street tree pruned or a stump removed by a Licensed Tree Service if you so desire.  To maintain our records and for liability reasons, a free City Forestry Permit is required. For your convenience, please complete the online forestry permit request form.
