Trees are an extremely important part of any ecosystem, they do so much and ask for so little in return, fortunately this is something that is recognized throughout the world and there are a number of steps that authorities take in order to protect them from humans. In the USA alone, each city has its very own tree ordinance and set of requirements that are put in place to safe guard trees. The rules and regulations of each city vary, some allow you to cut down a tree if necessary while others only let you remove trees and have them replanted somewhere else.
Just like with any other authority, it can be hard to understand all of its rules and regulations, if you remove a tree in a manner that violates your local tree protection ordinance’s rules then you can get into trouble. Finding and hiring a professional to help you deal with the authority can be expensive, luckily, you can go to the internet and start looking for information to any questions that you might have. However, if you’re too lazy to even do that, then you can take a look at twitter.com/TreeRemovalPerm, a page on twitter that dedicates itself to providing people with easy to understand information about their local tree protection authorities.
