What you need to know about tree removal in Woodinville

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 Woodinville homeowners need to worry about as that 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 also be submitted with the completed permit application. It includes a list of trees on your property along with their species and diameter of the trunk measured at 4.5 feet from the ground. A partial inventory is acceptable if all required tree credits have been confirmed.

What’s a Danger tree?

A Danger tree (also called a hazard tree) is any tree with disease or structural defect, like exposed roots or broken limbs.

These things make the tree more apt to break or fall and one that’s close to your home, property or person is a potential threat.

“I had a huge tree that needed to be taken down. The crew that arrived did an excellent job and if the wood hadn't been stacked nearby you would not have known that they had taken a tree (approximately 140' tall) down. Clean-up was excellent. The whole experience was great.”
