What are trees in critical areas?
Critical areas are defined as steep slopes, wetlands and wetland buffers, stream buffers, and/or habitat/greenbelt areas - in all instances, trees in these areas are regulated by the city and require a tree removal permit to be authorized for removal. Fore more information, view the City of Puyallup Tree Removal Flow Chart (PDF).
