What about a fence?
Fence repair does not require a permit. Repair is defined as replacing up to 2 fence sections OR various pickets constituting less than 50% of the total fence.
If you are doing anything more that repairing 2 sections of your fence, you will need a fence permit.
A tree permit shall be obtained prior to any tree being cut down. There is no charge for a tree permit. The application can be obtained through our website here. Please note that removing a tree without a permit could result in a costly citation being issues.
No permit is needed to plant a tree with the exception of new construction. New construction follows a site plan process which requires a certain number of trees per square foot of lot.
Yes, you can! The City has developed the "Arbor Tribute Walk" in several areas of the City to dedicate trees and benches in honor of special events and/or individuals.
