Property Owners should contact the Public Works Department at 678-691-1200 prior to removal. If the tree is healthy, we recommend you consult with an arborist or urban forester for information about proper pruning and care. Certified arborists can be found at the Isa Arbor website.
Homeowners are required to obtain a tree removal permit to remove a tree that is located in a required Zoning Buffer, Conservation Area, Open Space, Chattahoochee River Corridor or designated Tree Save Area; or if the tree is a specimen tree. If the tree is located outside of the previously mentioned areas, the homeowner can remove a tree from their property without a permit; however, property owners are required to keep at least two (2) live trees and any specimen trees.
Submit or download the tree removal permit application using the links below. Your request should include documentation showing the location, species, and approximate size of all existing trees noting the trees to be removed. You can submit the application online or email it.

If your lot is within 2,000 linear feet from the Chattahoochee River, the property is located in the River Corridor (see the Chattahoochee River Corridor map on our Maps page.)
For more information regarding the River Corridor please email Katherine Francesconi or call 470-395-7033.
There is no fee for a tree removal permit. The only associated cost is when you have tree recompense mitigation requirements for removal of a landmark/specimen tree.
