A city permit is required to remove any significant tree or any tree over 30 inches. Take a picture of the trees you want removed and map out the tree's location before heading down to the City Hall Permit Center (2nd floor). A certified arborist should be able to help you with the permit.
Summer is a good time to remove large, diseased trees growing dangerously close to your home. Winter storms can easily knock down large trees. If you confirm a neighbor is felling trees without a permit, contact the authorities.
