To remove a tree from residential property you must submit a tree permit application. To access an electronic version of the tree permit application, please visit the Central Permitting Documents and Forms page. All applications must be notarized and our central permitting department will do that for you. 

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

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.

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

Cash, check, credit card or money order accepted.
