Tree & Brush Removal Policy

As a reminder, no trees or vegetation may be removed from any property without a permit except for:

  1. When the vegetation removal is considered common household gardening or ground care
  2. When removing dead branches or pruning a single live tree
  3. When removing existing piles of dead brush or dead vegetation

Tree Removal Requirements

List of Arborists / Tree Trimmers / Brush Pickup Contractors

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 Alex Sanchez at 512-327-3628 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).
