Monroe or Snohomish County – Follow the rules

Monroe Washington follows the same rules and regulations that Snohomish County Planning and Development services follow. In new residential developments located within unincorporated urban growth areas, trees larger than 10 inches in diameter except for Vine Maples and dogwoods which require a caliper of at least 7 inches, are required to be retained in a critical protection area and their buffers and may be required perimeter landscaping pursuant.

However, according to Snohomish County, trees that are located in a Native Growth Protection area or a Critical Area Protection area or County prove landscaping plan may not be cut without prior approval from the county. If you own less than 2 acres you may remove as much timber as you want, provided that the wood is not removed from a critical area and it’s used for personal use only. For properties of 2 acres or more, up to 5000 board feet of timber in a 12 month period may be harvested for personal use.

Permit Exemptions?

There are exemptions to the permit by cutting down a significant tree if the tree is hazardous, dead or diseased, the construction of the single-family dwelling, duplex or storage structure needs to be put in its place or construction or maintenance of public or private road work. Pruning of trees, general maintenance of trees and the like do not need a permit. There is a penalty however if you cut down a significant tree so it’s always good to ask with the county before cutting down any large trees.

However, cutting down a tree on your property that might be getting in the way, growing too big or is putting out destructive roots can be removed without a permit.

"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
