Do I need a permit to cut trees on my property?

You may need a permit to cut trees on your property. Please make sure that the trees you want to remove are not located in publicly owned right-of-way or within an environmentally sensitive or critical area or designated buffer for such as wetlands, the marine bluff, stream ravine, or stream corridor. 

For access to city software to locate the general boundaries of your property visit the City’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping here. A short tutorial can be viewed here.

For more information on critical and environmentally sensitive areas and their regulations visit the City’s municipal code here.
