Removing hazardous trees increases the safety of people and property. Trees that qualify for removal are significantly diseased or otherwise hazardous. This program also saves property owners the costs of removal and replacement.

This program requires that each tree removed be replaced with another tree. The newly planted trees provide many benefits, including:

  • Providing shade and cooling your neighborhood
  • Increasing property values
  • Improving air quality
  • Capturing and filtering stormwater
  • Providing habitat for birds, pollinators and other wildlife.

Program participants will work with foresters to select replacement trees.

We are excited to announce that the tree removal and replacement program is now accepting applications. The program prioritizes applications from property owners who live at their property and whose household income is under $94,650 (for households from 1 to 4 people). See this chart for households of 5 or more people(External link)

The application process is 100% online and available in English, Hmong, Somali, and Spanish. Proof of income is required.  Apply for tree removal and replacement at link).
