What is Involved in Closing a Street For a Tree Removal in Arlington?
Sometimes, the only safe way to remove a tree is to close the street. When that needs to happen, it is important to know the rules and regulations your particular locality has regarding such street closings.
In certain municipalities, you have to make special arrangements with the local government before closing a street. As a rule there is no permit required to remove trees which are on private property in Arlington County. However, there are some specific exceptions when a permit is required.
If your property is within an Historic Area in Arlington, you will need a permit from the Historic Affairs and Landmark Review Board (HALRB). Permission is required from the Board to remove a tree over 15-inches in diameter. If your property is in an Historic Area or are not certain whether it is in an Historic Area, you may contact Michael Leventhal, staff liaison for HALRB, for more information.
If your property is within a Resource Protection Area (RPA) you will need permission from the Department Of Environmental Services (DES) before any vegetation may be removed. Resource Protection Areas are areas within 100-feet of a stream. RPAs may be extended more than 100-feet depending on how much slope there is along the stream. If your property is within a stream RPA or you are not certain whether your property is within a stream RPA, you may contact Jason Papacosma in DES.
If your trees are dead, both of these permits will be granted quickly. These programs are concerned with living trees or vegetation and will allow removal of hazardous trees with minimum process. See their website for more information about tree removal in Arlington and the permits required.
