PROTECTING OUR TREE CANOPY
Trees are a vital part of our ecosystem. A majority of the City’s tree canopy is in residential neighborhoods -- this means our residents can make a big difference in helping to maintain our tree canopy!

On May 10, 2022, the City Council approved Ordinance 21-O-09, which will require a permit to remove trees on residential land. Starting July 1, 2022, those who wish to remove or prune a tree must submit an application for a permit. Applications will be made available online, and in-person at the Department of Public Works, starting July 1. 

The ordinance was enacted to limit the removal of healthy, mature trees as a measure to maintain the City’s tree canopy. The Tree and Landscape Board and City Council held numerous public meetings and incorporated changes to address many concerns and suggestions from residents. 

Residents, property owners, and tree and landscape companies may have many questions about this new permitting process.  Visit www.collegeparkmd.gov/trees for a list of FAQs and for the application
