Tree Removal Regulations

There are concerns over the loss of trees in Lynnwood. Trees are very important for our natural environment, and our community.

The city has rules to protect trees and a tree voucher program to help residents replant trees. We require tree removal permits on all properties. Check out our guidelines and if you would like to remove a tree, please create a permit on our Online Permitting Portal.
