May I remove trees from my North Bend property?

What is a significant tree?
A significant tree is any evergreen tree of at least 15” DSH and any deciduous tree (other than red alder, holly, poplar and cottonwood) at least 12” DSH. DSH stands for Diameter at Standard Height and is the diameter of the trunk measure 4.5 feet above grade.
Do I need a permit to remove a significant tree?
Yes, a permit is required for the removal of any significant tree but there is no cost for the permit when removing 7 or less significant trees. You may be asked to submit a report by a Qualified Professional (ISA Certified Arborist) that describes the general health of the tree.
The number of trees that can be removed is decided by the applicable tree retention requirements, which states that 30% of all significant trees be retained in the developable site area for a single-family, duplex, short plats or subdivision development.
