Tree Removal Permits:

A tree removal permit must be submitted for review and approval by the Development Services Department prior to the removal of a tree. Whether a tree can be taken down without a permit is dependent on the size of the tree or where it is located. Tree mitigation may be required.

When required, an M&M Plan shall be submitted with a corresponding landscape plan for Village review and approval and shall coincide with the project WMO Permit. The M&M Plan template and appendices shall be used for all applicable projects. For additional details and requirements, see Section 6-305.F.2.b of the Land Development Code.
