The Permit Process

To remove a tree with a diameter of 30 cm or greater (roughly 1 ft wide) within the City of Toronto a Permit is required.

To submit an Application to Remove a Privately Owned Tree in Toronto you need..

·         Replanting Plan with a Promise to Replant large growing native shade tree(s)

·         Completed Application Form

Approximately three weeks after the appropriate Urban Forestry Office has received the above documents they will issue an Undertaking and Release Form. This form must be signed, dated and witnessed and returned to Urban Forestry.

Generally, within a week of receiving the signed Undertaking and Release, Urban Forestry will issue the Permit to Remove a Private Tree.
