Commercial Tree Removal
A Tree Removal Permit Application must be submitted to the City of Alpharetta and approved prior to the removal of any tree, dead or alive, from commercial property. 

In most cases trees that are removed will need to be replaced on site to comply with zoning requirements as well as maintain the minimum tree density requirement for commercial properties.

Prior to submitting for a tree removal permit please make sure to have the following information in front of you. 

• Address where the tree is located (required)
• Name of property owner (required)
• Name of tree removal company (optional but preferred)
• List of trees including type and size (required)
• Location of tree and reason for removal (required)
• Diagram and photographs of the property showing the tree(s) and their locations (required)
• Replanting plan for any zoning required trees (required)
• Arborist assessment for any Specimen size tree (required).
