Woodinville, that fine Vineyard city on Seattle’s Eastside, is home to thousands if not millions of trees, many of which may be on your property. So what you want to do? Remove it? The city of Woodinville has certain rules and regulations when it comes to tree removal within the city limits. Here’s what they say:
“A property owner may remove up to two healthy trees within a 12 month period or for healthy trees within a 24 month. With the tree removal permit.
There is no limit on the number of hazards, dead, or nuisance trees that may be removed; however, replanting may be required. An arborist report will be required if the tree removal is based on the nuisance or hazard criteria as specified in Woodinville municipal code and the condition is not easily observed.”
So, did you get all that? Basically, you do need a tree removal permit regardless of the reason for removing the tree even if it is on your own property. If the site does not meet the minimum tree credit requirement then a planting plan is required. A permit fee is also due at the time of issuance.
