Tree Resources, FAQ and Permits
Below are some useful resources and a list of cities with links to permitting.
City Regulations change often so Matt’s Tree Service recommends contacting your governing officials to be sure no other permits are required or that rules and regulations have not changed.
Home Owner Association (HOA) Regulations can be in addition to city Permits and may require additional permits.

No permits are required in Bothell for tree removal. If removing more than a few trees, a land clearing permit may be required. In addition, trees on a sensitive slope may require prior approval before they can be cut down. Call (425) 486-8152 ext. 4487 with questions regarding tree removal.
Q:What do I do about fallen, leaning, or overgrown trees?
A:Overgrown trees and green belts: If on public property, they will be inspected and trimmed if deemed necessary. If the overgrown tree is on private property and determined to be a hazard, the City will notify the property owner. If a fallen or leaning tree is a danger to citizens, vehicles, or in the power lines, call 911. Otherwise, report fallen or leaning trees to 425-488-0118
Q: What if I only want to remove one or two trees? Will I still need to apply for a permit and inventory all my trees?
A: Although a clearing & grading permit will be required for the removal of any significant tree in the R-1 zone of Bridle Trails, you are allowed to remove up to two significant trees on a lot within a three-year period without meeting the perimeter and interior tree retention requirements. When only 8 trees remain, or 8 or fewer trees exist on the property, you are required to replace any of the last 8 significant trees with an equal number of trees somewhere on the lot.
