Tree Removal


By-law 97-35 regulates the destruction of trees in Clarington.

If you are planning to cut down or remove trees within a woodland area, you may need a permit from the Region of Durham. There are two types of permits available under the Region's Tree By-law--a Good Forestry Practices Permit and a Clear Cutting Permit. A "Woodland" is a treed area one hectare in size and greater, but does not include orchards, tree nurseries or Christmas tree plantations.
