Tree Removal Information
Regardless of species, all tree removals must be approved by the FE-ARC. The City of Altamonte Springs requires a permit for tree removals. In the case of dead trees in immediate danger of falling, permits are not required but you must have a certified arborist provide documentation that the tree is dead. The majority of tree trimmers are not certified arborists so if you are not using an arborist then simply submit a permit to the city. It’s free and only takes a day or two for the city arborist to visit your lot. Do not fall prey to predatory tree trimmers, it could cost you fines and tree replacement costs.
The city requires an approved ARC form before an arbor permit is approved. Per city ordinance and Forest Edge Covenants, each lot must have a minimum of 2 large canopy tree species preferably from the city’s approved TREE LIST. For more information, view Altamonte Springs Code of Ordinances Article VII. Even during a permit moratorium due to storm damage, an ARC form is still required to remove a tree.
