Trees play an important role in the ‘greening’ of our city. They make our surroundings pleasant, provide relief from summer heat and reduce glare from pavement. They also increase the value of real estate, reduce stormwater runoff and improve the quality of the air we breathe.
It is important to carefully manage this precious resource and to preserve the existing urban forest within our City.
Before you prune or remove a tree from your residential or business property you may be required to apply for permission from us.
