City Permit Required to Remove Trees

City Permit Required to Remove Trees

Woodinville, WA – If you have a tree that you would like to remove, the City of Woodinville wants to remind residents that there are several tree removal requirements which should be followed when removing trees. The following are the requirements for tree removal in the City of Woodinville:

Tree Removal Requirements:
• A tree removal permit is required to remove a significant tree. Significant trees are classified as any tree with a trunk that has a diameter of 6”.
• Two significant trees may be removed per year without an arborist report.
• If you plan to remove more than two trees, an arborist report is required. The report must be completed by an arborist certified by the International Society of Arboriculture, and the arborist must have secondary certification in tree risk assessment.
• A tree inventory must also be submitted with the permit application. This includes a list of the trees on your property, including the species or type of tree, and the diameter of the trunk, measured 4.5 feet off the ground. If all required tree credits have been confirmed, a complete inventory is not needed; a partial inventory is acceptable.
• The fee for the tree removal permit is $20. The fine for illegally removing a tree is $1,000 per tree.
• Forms are available at http://www.ci.woodinville.wa.us/Work/PermitForms.asp
• Please contact Jenna Ormson at 425-877-2293 for questions related to Tree Removal or the Tree Removal permit.
