Trees

treesRemoving Trees from a Critical Area

If a tree is hazardous and must be removed from a critical area or critical area buffer, a tree removal/pruning request application (Call Before You Cut form) is required.  Hazard tree removal in critical areas and critical area buffers may require replanting of native trees to mitigate and restore the ecological benefits formerly provided by the tree.  Replanted trees, over time, provide structural diversity and can increase the overall species diversity in the critical area or buffer.

The City may require a hazard tree assessment or evaluation prepared by a certified arborist with submittal of a tree removal/pruning application.  The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and Pacific Northwest Chapter of ISA maintain a list of local certified arborists.
