Permit Required:

Homeowners are required to obtain a tree removal permit if the tree is located in a required Zoning Buffer, Conservation or Open Space, the Chattahoochee River Corridor or designated Tree Save Area; or if it is a specimen tree (see below). Otherwise a homeowner can remove live trees from their property without a permit. If you do remove live trees from your property, it is a requirement you keep at least two live trees and any specimen trees located on your lot.
