Please be advised that if you need to trim OAK trees the time to get your permit is now. The City will stop issuing OAK tree trimming permits as of February 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019. We will issue Oak tree trimming permits again starting July 1, 2019. The reason for this is to help reduce the spread of Oak Wilt in the City. Please be reminded that when trimming oak branches, wounds must be painted immediately and all debris removed within 48 hours.
Homeowners doing the work (trimming) themselves are not charged a permit fee. Contractors doing the work must pull an Oak tree trimming permit - $50.
Non-oak tree trimming permits are available year-round and are $25. (Homeowners doing the work are not charged a fee.)
