As a reminder, no trees or vegetation may be removed from any property without a permit except for:
When the vegetation removal is considered common household gardening or ground care
When removing dead branches or pruning a single live tree
When removing existing piles of dead brush or dead vegetation
Any other removal of vegetation requires a permit. In most cases the permit is free. However, before removing any dead wood or live trees from your property, please contact Russell Cain at 512-610-6836 in order to secure a permit and to assist with coordinating your project with others in your area. The West Lake Hills City Code requires you to remove all dead wood (i.e., dead bamboo, dead jasmine, piles of dead branches, and stacks of old firewood).
