Let's make it easy.

Trees are crucial to Victoria's beauty, health and are an invaluable asset to our lovely city. Tree protection bylaws within our community help protect, maintain and and rejuvenate our urban landscape. In Victoria and the Southern Vancouver Island bylaws regulate the guidelines for cutting, pruning, altering, damaging, removing and replacing protected trees. It's important to note that in some municipalities - even protected trees that are completely dead or dying may require a permit.  Find your community and bylaw regulations below and apply for your permit today.



  Most districts and municipalities require tree work to be done by an ISA Certified Arborist. Remember to check credentials of anyone you choose to hire - as the homeowner alone is responsible for ensuring their contractor is current in his/her credentials, is insured, and meets bylaw standards.

At Climbing Fox we have you covered.
