Trees produce vital oxygen, improve the climate, filter dust and pollutants, and provide humidity and air movement. They provide a habitat for a wide variety of animals, enliven and structure the cityscape and dampen noise. To ensure that trees are preserved, they require special protection - especially in heavily populated areas.

If you want to cut down a tree, a permit may be required. If necessary, you may have to provide compensation for the felled tree. A felling permit is particularly necessary if trees are subject to special protection.

During the period between March 1 and September 30, it is prohibited to cut down trees and other woody plants. It is also forbidden to put them on the stock. You may cut trees and other woody plants then only for maintenance. If you have to cut down a tree during this period, for example because it impairs traffic safety, you will need an exceptional permit.
