The recent ice storm caused extensive tree damage across the city. Urban Forestry staff are still very busy responding to those emergencies and regular permit services will be delayed.
We have received and are responding to many reports of tree hazards or obstructions in city streets. If a call or email has already been placed about a tree emergency in a city street, please know Urban Forestry staff will get there as soon as possible, and thank you for your understanding.
If you are requesting a retroactive permit, you must provide photographic evidence of the danger to structure or public and submit photos with a retroactive removal permit application within 7 days of the removal.
