Request removal or cutting of certain trees, hedges, live fences, bushes within a certain period of time


Trees produce vital oxygen, improve the climate, filter dust and pollutants and provide humidity and movement. They provide habitat for a wide variety of animals, enliven and structure the cityscape and townscape and dampen noise. In order to preserve trees, they are particularly protected – especially in densely populated areas.

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

In the period between 1 March and 30 September, the felling of trees and other woody plants is prohibited. It is also forbidden to put them on the stick. You may then only cut trees and other woody plants for care. If you have to cut down a tree during this time, for example because it affects road safety, you need an exemption for this.
