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.
