Standing Tree with Storm Damage

If your tree has been damaged by a storm but is still standing, please take the following steps:

  1. Seek advice from a certified tree care professional who can determine if the tree is hazardous and provide recommendations for how to mitigate hazard
  2. If tree is assessed as being an imminent hazard by the certified arborist, the tree can be removed immediately. Written documentation (condition of the tree, tree risk assessment, photos) compiled by the arborist must be submitted to
  3. If tree is not assessed as an imminent hazard, but is assessed as having conditions or defects which contribute to an elevated level of risk associated with the tree, then a tree risk assessment can be prepared by the arborist and included in your Tree Permit Application [hyperlink]
