Service Description

Trees produce vital oxygen, improve the climate, filter dust and pollutants and provide humidity and air movement. They provide a habitat for a wide variety of animals, enliven and structure the cityscape or townscape and dampen noise. To ensure that trees are preserved, they require special protection - especially in densely populated areas.

If you wish to fell a tree, a permit may be required. You may have to pay compensation for the felled tree. A felling permit is particularly necessary if trees are subject to special protection.

The felling of trees and other woody plants is prohibited between March 1 and September 30. It is also forbidden to cut them down. You may only prune trees and other woody plants for maintenance purposes. If you need to cut down a tree during this period, for example because it is a hazard to road safety, you will need a special permit.
