May I remove trees from my Bellevue property?

Yes, as long as there are no restrictions on your property you can remove a tree, even several trees without a permit. If the tree removal results in over 1,000 sq. feet of disturbance of the ground, you are required to obtain a clearing and grading permit.

Restrictions that may prevent you from removing a tree

  • Your subdivision or PUD (Planned Unit Development) may prohibit removal
  • Your property contains a critical area, such as a steep slope, stream corridor or wetland, or if one is located adjacent to or near your property.
  • Your property is subject to private contracts, covenants or homeowner associations that may have other rules.

Special restrictions for R-1 zone in the Bridle Trails Subarea

To preserve their unique neighborhood, specific tree preservation requirements have been placed on the R-1 zone in Bridle Trails. These requirements are placed on “significant” trees, meaning any healthy tree 8 inches or greater in diameter, measured 4 feet above the ground and mostly affect the perimeter area of all property lines.

While a clearing and grading permit is required for the removal of any significant tree in the R-1 zone, you are allowed to remove up to 2 significant trees on a lot within a 3-year period without meeting the perimeter and interior tree retention requirements. When 8 or fewer trees remain on your property, you are required to replace any of the last 8 trees with an equal number of trees.
