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” trees, 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.
