Dead, Dying, or Hazardous (DDH) Tree Removal

Dead, dying, or hazardous (DDH) tree removal applications are approved or denied based on an individual tree inspection by a city forestor or arborist. Denied DDH applications may be appealed.  DDH permits may not be appealed, even if a privately hired arborist says the tree is healthy.  The denial of a citizen's right to appeal a DDH decision is a known loophole in the Tree Protection Ordinance.

DDH permits do not require prior public notice, though the permit must be available on site for public inspection. [Sec. 158-101(c)(1)]

If you are removing a DDH tree, you should consider notifying your neighbors that you have a permit to take down a DDH tree and to prominently display your permit at the site; otherwise, well-intentioned neighbors may call the police when the tree is being cut.

If you see what appears to be a healthy tree being removed and you are told that it is being removed because it is DDH, ask to see the removal permit and follow the steps for what you should do when you see a tree coming down. Take multiple pictures of the tree, showing it's lean, bark, and roots.  Once the tree is down, take cross-sectional pictures of the tree and see if you see any signs of decay there.  You may not save the tree, but if a healthy tree was indeed taken down because it was misclassified as DDH, you will have collected the evidence you need to file a complaint with the Arborist Division.  Also, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
