Street trees have special status in the city and cannot be planted, pruned or removed without a permit. A street tree is defined as any tree planted on public right of way – usually in the strip of grass between the sidewalk and curb. When there is no curb or sidewalk a street tree is determined by the boundary between the street right of way and the private property line.
Contact the Parks & Recreation office at for permission and a permit prior to beginning any work on a street tree. We want to make sure the work is done safely, correctly and keep our tree inventory up to date.
A permit is necessary before planting in order to ensure the correct species of tree is planted. Many tree problems can be avoided by following the “Right Tree, Right Place” philosophy. Homeowners planting trees can also receive a guide to proper tree care.
The downloadable permit form below can be printed, filled out and sent to the Parks and Recreation Department. Your proposed planting site or tree work will be inspected and the Municipal Arborist will contact you.
