All trees to be removed in Rivergrove require a permit.
A tree is defined as having a trunk larger than or equal to 11.5 inches in diameter (36 inch circumference) measured 4.5 feet from the ground.
Anything less than this in size is not considered a jurisdictional tree and no permit is required for removal.
Any application to remove a tree in the floodplain or any application to remove more than three trees in one calendar year requires a hearing before the Planning Commission.
Please refer to the Rivergrove Tree Ordinance for specifics.
