Live in Everett? You May Need to Know This

Everett Washington – home to over 100,000 people and quite a few more trees. The Boeing plant, Paine Field, and a darling north Everett historical neighborhood (did I just say darling?) But it is! It’s a great place to live. But it does come with some rules and regulations when it comes to trees. They even have their own “Tree Management” chapter (8.40 if you wanted to know).

The most important regulation for residents is 8.40.060, which states:

No person, firm or corporation shall interfere with the director or persons acting under his/her authority while engaged in the planting, maintenance, removal or replacement of any tree, shrub or plant in any street, park, public right-of-way or easement, or other public place within the city limits.

Other than that, the Tree Program is designed to create a partnership between residential and commercial property owners and since it’s implementation, nearly 5,000 trees have been planted in over 20 neighborhoods around Everet.

If you want to request a tree, check out this approved list of trees, but if you want to remove a tree, that’s a different story, and that’s where we come into play. You can request a public tree be removed if:

  • An extreme public nuisance
  • Deemed hazardous
  • Infected with an epidemic insect or disease
  • Interferes with growth of a more desirable tree

And it’s important to note that both our personal service and the city does not top trees for almost any reason.In an article back in 2012, the Everett Herald joked about “how many people does it take to chop down a tree?” But homeowners who cut trees in areas without the city’s permission could face a very hefty fine.

They Have Rules and Regulations

The city is required by the state to have laws that protect many of Everett’s wetlands, steep slopes, and streams throughout the city. If you take matters into your own hands and remove the tree that is not on your own property simply to enjoy your view more you could face fines from $1000 up to $10,000. This is why it is crucial before removing any trees to know the rules and regulations.

Now, this is only trees that may or may not be on your property but trees that are located in a Native Growth Protection Area or a critical area or County approve landscaping may not be cut without prior approval.However, if you all less than 2 acres you can remove as many trees as you want as long as it is not in a critical area. If you’re cutting over 5000 board feet or any of the lumbar is traded, bartered, or sold, a Forest Practice permit is required.

"The bid for tree removal/topping was the best of the three I obtained. The two young men that did the work arrived the day as scheduled and did a great job overall. They were courteous and made a point of listening to what I was trying to accomplish with opening the view from my deck. I would hire them again."... Marysville, WA - Home Advisor
