Tampa Tree Service

Tampa Florida is at the mouth of the Hillsborough River, which it empties into Tampa Bay. Tampa is the third largest city in the Florida with about 4 million residents in the metro area. Tampa is well known for having a warm climate, great sports teams and plenty of entertainment.

The city's urban forest adds character and beauty to Tampa while removing airborne pollutants and preventing soil from erodsion. Tampa's trees offer nature experiences for residents and their guests. Our trees and forests provide habitat for our wildlife, and influence the recreational landscape that adds to the economic vitality of the city. Studies show that Tampa has more than seven million trees inside the city limits.

Tree Removal Regulations in Tampa

The City of Tampa has regulations in effect that cover the tree service industry as well as landowners who do their own tree work. If you need to remove a cypress or mangrove tree in Tampa, a permit is mandatory regardless the tree size or age. When it comes to other protected trees, a permit is required when the trunk is 5" or more in diameter. The City of Tampa levies severe penalties for removing protected trees without the proper permit.

Trees that Do Not Require a Permit to Remove:

There are a few species of tree that require no permit to remove in the Tampa city limits: Carrotwood, Surinam Cherry, Mimosa, Chinaberry, Golden Rain Tree, Punk Tree, Chinese Tallow, Queen Palm, Lead Tree, Austrailian Pine, Wild Cherry, Brazilian Pepper, Rosewood, Queensland Umbrella Tree, Citrus (all Types), Male Mulberry, Monkey Puzzle, Eucalyptus Tree, Ear Tree, Cherry Laurel, Earleaf Acacia, Silk Oak Tree

Grand Trees in the City of Tampa

Any tree measuring more than 34 inches in diameter may qualify as a "Grand Tree". Trees that fall under this "Grand Tree" specification are more strictly protected and can only be removed under certain conditions. When the City of Tamp has determined that a grand tree does meet the conditions for removal, a 14 day stay is mandated along with a notice procedure which is required to be completed before the permit is finally issued. Mid Florida Tree Service is experienced with this complex process and will handle this for you when contracted.

The special protection for grand trees also applies to pruning and trimming. We'll send an on staff ISA Certified Arborist to determine if your tree is a "Grand Tree" and request the required pruning permit if it is.
