Do I Need a Permit to Remove a Tree?
Homeowners are required to obtain a tree removal permit if the tree is located in a required Zoning Buffer, Conservation or Open Space, the Chattahoochee River Corridor or designated Tree Save Area or if it is a specimen tree. Otherwise homeowners may remove live trees from their property without a permit.
If you do remove live trees from your property, you are required to keep at least two (2) live trees and any specimen trees located on your lot.
