Permitted and Prohibited Trees

Urban Forestry will only issue planting permits if the selected trees are on the permitted planting list.
Urban Forestry has the right to grant permits to plant species not on the list, and the right to waive a standard. Urban Forestry will not issue a planting permit if the selected tree is on the prohibited planting list.

Permitted and Prohibited Tree List (Master Tree List): lists all tree species permitted planting within the city, as well as prohibited tree species. This list is in order by Tree Size Type (height at maturity): A (50ft +), B (+25ft – 50ft) and C (10ft – 25ft).
