What You Need To Know About Tree Removal In Auburn
The City of Auburn welcomes residents to check with the city before doing any work to make sure they understand any requirements or permits that may be needed. Currently, property owners can remove up to 6 trees in a 12-month period without obtaining a permit.
There Are A Few Exemptions To This Rule And In Those Cases, City Approval Is Needed Beforehand. Here’s The List Of Exemptions.
- Removal of trees on property that has environmentally sensitive areas (wetlands or streams)
- Removal of trees on property with hillsides that have moderate or steep slopes
- Topping of trees on property in or near a wetland, stream or on a hillside.
Most of the time, homeowners will not have to worry about these requirements as their property does not contain a critical area. Normal maintenance of your trees, such as pruning has no restrictions so take care of your trees so they remain healthy and have a long lifespan.
If you have questions regarding tree removal, contact the Environmental Protection Manager at the City of Auburn Planning and Development Department at (253) 876-1962
