Service Description

Trees produce vital oxygen, improve the climate, filter dust and pollutants, and provide humidity and movement. They provide a habitat for a wide variety of animals, enliven and structure the cityscape and dampen noise. To ensure that trees are preserved, they are particularly protected, especially in heavily populated areas.

If you want to cut down a tree, a permit may be required. If necessary, you will have to compensate for the felled tree. A felling permit is particularly necessary if trees are subject to special protection.

In the period between 1 March and 30 September, the felling of trees and other woody plants is prohibited. It is also forbidden to put them on the stick. They are then only allowed to cut trees and other shrubs for maintenance. If you have to cut down a tree during this time, for example because it impairs road safety, you need an exemption.
