If you think you have a tree that might be eligible for the RTRP program you should first contact CANOPY. After talking with you, they will forward your information to the Public Works Department.
A Public Works staff member will visit your property to size up the situation with your tree(s). At that time, you will receive a packet of information, including the RTRP application and rebate forms.
If the tree to be removed is one of the City’s “protected” tree species, there will be an additional step involving a review (at no cost to you) by the Urban Forester to be sure that removing this extra-valuable tree is the best option.
After your application is approved, you will be scheduled for your tree removal.
If you choose to have the stump ground and/or to buy a replacement tree, the City has an easy rebate process you can follow to get reimbursed for those expenses.
