Our tree removal operations begin with a clear explanation of the local bylaws and how they relate to your tree removal request. These guidelines are given to our Arborists to follow while issuing tree removal permits. Before we begin with a tree removal project we help our clients determine whether an Arborist report for tree removal permit or land development application permit will be required. Some of the Reasons you may wish to have a tree removed often include:
✔ Dead, dying, hazardous and diseased trees
✔ Trees causing damage to your property
✔ Trees within a defined construction envelope for a new build or renovation
✔ Aged or mature trees that could pose a risk to you or someone else’s property
✔ Development plans or construction events
✔ You have been issued a tree removal permit in accordance to your local bylaws
How Do I Know If My Tree Needs To Be Removed?
Sometimes trees that need to be removed show obvious signs of a diseased or dying tree. Some of the most common signs that you can look for include:
✔ Damaged bark and deep cuts or cracks in the trunk
✔ Large open cavities often causing decay in the trunk
✔ Dead wood and branches throught the upper crown
✔ Accumulated soil at the base of the trunk and beneath the canopy
✔ Leaning trees that pose a safety hazard or unstable roots
If you recognize any of these signs or think your tree needs to be removed due to symptoms of damage, decay, or hazardous conditions give us a call today for a free estimate
When Do I Need a Tree Removal Permit?
In the City of Surrey a tree removal permit is required if the diameter of your tree is greater than 30cm at breast height, or if the tree was planted as a required replacement tree or condition of development tree. Some tree species are also protected in Surrey.
Some of the reasons you can apply for a permit include:
✔ Your tree is dead or in decline beyond expectation of recovery
✔ Your tree has a structural defect that makes it hazardous
✔ Your tree interferes with servicing without an alternative
✔ Your tree is within 2 meters of the home’s foundation
✔ To allow for construction
