Tree Removal Permits
Victoria has one of the rarest and most threatened urban forests in the Pacific Northwest. Thousands of trees make up our “urban forest” and provide abundant environmental, health, esthetic and property-value benefits to our community. Regardless of whether trees grow on private or public land, the removal or damage to trees is monitored by the City of Victoria.
The City of Victoria has implemented a new Tree Preservation Bylaw in an effort to protect trees, particularly those that are native or have a significant heritage or landmark value.
