Can you remove trees by yourself?

In general, there are no laws or regulations in Virginia that prohibit you from removing individual trees from your property. Removing a tree is labor intensive and dangerous. DIY enthusiasts often underestimate the size and weight of branches and large trunk sections, as well as the likelihood of damage or accidents when trying to remove cut sections. When you need to get a tree out of a difficult situation, a crane may be the only way to safely remove branches and tree trunks.

Most of the time (99% of the time) the answer is no. Dead trees, especially if they have been considered dead for an extended period, are considered dangerous. You won't need a permit to remove a dead tree. Denver Parks and Recreation, which is responsible for Denver's urban tree landscape, points out that the responsibility for removing trees on private properties lies entirely with the owner, not his office.

However, if homeowners find trees that invade their property from the street or other public spaces, they must request a permit to remove them. They cannot be removed without this permission, or they may be penalized by the City of Denver. Denver residents also cannot remove trees that are within the public right of way, even if they are on their property. According to their code for trees that stick out or invade trees, the city's police officer has the right to issue a notice to the landlord and, if they don't take care of it after 30 days, proceed to prune or remove the tree.

There are also specific trees listed as conservation types or champions that cannot be removed, so residents should ensure that their trees do not fit that list by calling the department first. On the other hand, if you had to remove a 150-year-old oak tree that was 50 feet tall and housed a pair of rare and endangered breeding owls, you could imagine that the fine would be much heavier. Its municipal code also does not allow city officials to remove trees on private property, so the landlord must remove any dangerous or dead trees. The state of Minnesota also has rules and regulations regarding dangerous trees and annoying branches and trees on private property that may require their removal accordingly for the safety of the public.

Michigan ash trees began to be infected with emerald ash borer disease in 2003, and now has special ash disposal sites across the state. There are also certain types of trees banned in Bismarck (13-02-1) that produce cotton and that the city can remove. New Mexico's tree population is significant for the state's climate, so the government imposes no restrictions or rules when it comes to felling trees on private properties.

In Dallas and the surrounding suburbs, homeowners are fully responsible for the care and removal of their trees and do not require a permit for their removal. In Miami, any removal of more than 25 percent of the trees will require a permit before a professional can cut them down. Kansas state law requires any city to demonstrate, whether through laboratory tests or other tests, that a tree is infected on private property before it can be entered and removed.

Honolulu city officials do not require residents to notify or fill out a permit application before trees are removed from their property. The same is required in Oakland, where certain types of trees are “protected”, meaning that it is a living coastal oak that is four inches or more in diameter or four and a half feet above the ground, or it is another type of tree that measures nine inches in diameter or more. The Wyoming Forestry Division published a Tree Owner's Manual to help its residents stay abreast of tree care regulations in private homes. .
