Tree Removal Guidelines

Before you have a tree removed, you will need to check with your city, town, county, or HOA to find out if a tree removal permit is required. 

Most tree removal permit requests will require the DBH (diameter at breast height) which is measured at approximately 4.5′ up the trunk from ground level.  In this location you will need to wrap a tape measure around the tree obtaining the circumference, then divide it by 3.14 to find your approximate DBH.

Below, you will find some resources to help you request a tree removal permit.
