City of Upper Arlington, Ohio

Street Tree Permits

Residents, contractors, or any other person who wishes to plant, prune, remove, or otherwise work on a tree within the City's right of way must by law obtain a permit from the Division of Parks & Forestry. A permit is also required prior to any excavation within 10' of a street tree. These rules are to protect both street trees and the public, because trees that are damaged by improper work or excavation can injure or kill people later.
 
Permits can be obtained by calling 583-5340. Staff may need to review plans or perform a site inspection prior to issuing a permit. Street tree work permits are free, and are not a substitute for any other permits that may be required for a project.
