In Washington state, regulations regarding tree removal on private property can vary depending on local ordinances and jurisdictional requirements. While I can provide general information, it's crucial to consult with your local government and NW Green Clearing to understand the specific rules and permissions that apply to your property.

In some cases, you may need to obtain a permit or permission before cutting down a tree, especially if it meets certain criteria. For example, there may be restrictions on removing trees of a certain size or species, or if they are in sensitive areas such as wetlands or protected zones. Some cities or homeowner associations may also have their own regulations regarding tree removal.

To determine the requirements for tree removal on your property, you can:

  1. Contact your local city or county planning department: They can provide information on any specific regulations or permits required for tree removal in your area.
  2. Consult with us NW Green Clearing, we are a tree removal professional company, we also are familiar with local regulations and can guide you on the necessary steps and permits.
