Tree Removal

Tree Ordinance

View the current tree ordinance (PDF) so that you continue to comply with Pasco County's codes.


To remove a tree from residential property you must submit a tree removal application (PDF). All applications must be notarized and our central permitting department will do that for you. The fee is $50 per parcel/address up to 5 trees. If a site visit is required an additional fee of $30.00 will apply. Typically any tree 24 inches in diameter or greater will require a site visit.

There are three Central Permitting departments that you can bring your application to:

  • 8731 Citizens Drive Suite 230 New Port Richey (727) 847-8126
  • 14236 6th Street Suite 203 Dade City (352) 521-4279
  • 4111 Land O Lakes Boulevard Land O Lakes (813) 929-2749

Payment is accepted Monday - Friday, 8 am - 3:30 pm.

Cash, check, credit card or money order accepted.
