Bylaws & Permits

Bylaws and Permits in Greater Victoria

Trees offer valuable economic, social and environmental benefits. In an effort to save the environment and promote greenery, municipalities in Greater Victoria have implemented tree protection bylaws. This means a tree removal or cutting permit may be required before you can cut trees on your property. A tree removal permit grants permission to remove trees from a property. The protection of tree bylaws defines only certain cases when a tree can be removed. This includes:

  • Dead, dying, diseased or presents a hazard

  • Causing serious damage to property

  • Damaged by a storm

Each municipality in the Greater Victoria area has its own set of bylaws. Click on the links to find out more.

The team at Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. can help you in getting a permit for tree removal. Contact us today!

Extremely Impressed
“Extremely impressed. Very professional, friendly and did an amazing job. Would highly recommend Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. Have used other companies but Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. was no doubt the best by far in all regards.”
- Jennifer P.

Reliable and Honest
“Professional, reliable and honest service. We required dangerous tree pruning around the main hydro lines and removal of a tree growing into the foundation of our house. Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. came out and assessed the required work and gave their word with a handshake. Their price was competitive and far less than some of the other highly advertised tree service companies. The staff were competent and considerate and cleaned up our yard and any debris in the neighbour’s yard. The company has top equipment to reach large trees in difficult locations. I would highly recommend this company.”
- Mark H.

Professional and Friendly
“We needed to have two large trees removed and two others trimmed back. We contacted Aaron at Tomahawk Tree Service Ltd. who visited us promptly to give an estimate. His crew (Rafael, Peter, Brody, Brian and Spencer) arrived first thing this morning as scheduled. They were very professional, competent and friendly. It was amazing to see their skill and awareness in lowering the large tree branches to the ground, and cutting down the trunks without damaging any of the surrounding areas or plants. Their cleanup was meticulous. We were very pleased with their work, and would not hesitate to recommend them highly.”
- Jane S. and Doug H.
