Residential tree permit information
Clearing a lot for construction of a new single-family residence requires a tree removal permit.

To find out what your setbacks are, please contact the zoning office at 386-943-7059.
Protected trees may be removed with proper permitting, but require replacement. The Environmental Management Division (EMD) inspector will determine the replacement required based on the number and size of trees removed.
