What you need to know about removal
In Woodinville, all properties are required to meet a certain level of tree density, which is measured by the species and size of the tree. The size of the tree is measured by the DBH or diameter at breast height (4.5 feet above the ground).
Tree credits are based on these 2 criteria so the larger the tree, the higher the credit.
What’s my required tree credit?
- Single-family residential lots less than 7,200 sq. ft.-30 tree credits per acre
- Downtown (CBD) zone-30 tree credits per acre
- All other properties within the City-60 tree credits per acre
Most tree removals require a permit, including hazard and nuisance tree removal. Tree removals are divided into categories or tree plans though Tree Plan 4 is the one most homeowners need as it pertains to removing trees on your property, including healthy trees, trees in critical areas and hazard trees.
How many trees can you remove?
2 healthy trees may be cut down within any 12-month period. An unlimited number of hazard or nuisance trees may be cut (with arborist report and permit), but if more than 2 of these type of trees are removed, no additional healthy trees can be cut down within the same 12-month period. You may be required to replant to keep tree density at the required limit.
Tree permits and arborist reports
If an arborist report is needed (as when cutting down hazard trees), it must be done and filed by an arborist certified by the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) and the arborist needs to have a secondary certification in tree risk assessment.
FYI-If you need a permit, a tree inventory must be submitted with the completed application. It includes a list of trees on your property, their species and trunk diameter measured at DBH. A partial inventory is acceptable if all required tree credits have been confirmed.
