Do I need a tree removal permit?

If you're developing a property, applying for a building permit, or considering removing a tree, you may require a Tree Inventory and Preservation Plan and/or a tree removal permit. Most municipalities in the GTHA have by-laws protecting trees or woodlots on private and public properties. Refer to the links below for the tree preservation or tree removal application requirements of various regions and municpalities. This list is not exhaustive; many municipalities require a Tree Inventory and Preservation Plan as part of their development application process despite the absence of a specific Tree Protection By-law.
