Tree Regulations

The City of Redmond adopted the current tree protection regulations (Ordinance 1998) in 1998. The regulations contain tree retention standards for new developments, as well as tree removal permit requirements on developed lots. These regulations have not had a comprehensive review since they were adopted over twenty years ago. It is time to check back with the community to determine if these regulations need modifications and are achieving their goals in the context of urban growth.

Please read about Redmond's tree regulations, and the goals and objectives of this project, then complete a short questionnaire. Your input will help inform Redmond City Council's decision-making regarding tree regulations. The questionnaire will be open through July 30.
