tree removal permit

The Tree Removal Permit is being revised to accommodate the new tree ordinance #89-2018. Please contact manager@cityofrivergrove.com if you need to submit a tree cutting permit or have questions about tree removal in the City of Rivergrove.

 
“Even an infinite number of young trees cannot replace one mature tree. Trees are living organisms that change over time, and it takes a long time for them to mature. Humans can’t buy back that time and just stick it in the ground.”
— Brian French, City Arborist
