Do I need a permit or permission from the Town to cut down a tree on my property?

A permit or permission to cut down a tree on private property may be required. Cutting down, damaging or otherwise destroying trees on private property is subject to the guidelines described in the Tree Protection By-law for which the application can be found here on the Planning Services web page.  In accordance with this Municipal By-law, you must have a permit to destroy or damage trees on private property unless lands are otherwise exempt.
