Do I need a permit?

You may need a permit to cut your own tree on your property. Like it or not, these tree by-laws are here to stay. When a tree is protected, property owners, arborists, and the governing municipality have to work together. I’m familiar with the requirements and processes to help you along the way.

Going forward the fact of the matter will be that some trees will not be granted permits to remove. We aim to find solutions through pruning and/or support to let you comfortably co-exist with your large tree(s) if they need to stay.
