What you need to know about removing a tree from your Kirkland property

  • If you need to have a significant tree removed from a private property with no conditions, you will need to fill out a tree removal notification form, which has no fees associated with it.
  • If you need tree removal on a property with conditions or you are removing more than 2 trees, then you will need a tree removal permit, which requires a $200 fee. An arborist report is usually required though you may submit photos for trees with obvious defects or trees causing damage to your property.
