As a full service tree company, Eastside Tree Works has a staff of tree experts ready to help you with all of your tree-related problems from tree trimming to removal to stump grinding. Serving the entire Woodinville Washington area and beyond, we offer service to both homes and businesses.
With certified arborists on staff and multiple crews with over 100 years of experience, we offer fast response to all situations. Whether you need a tree removed from tight quarters or have a large number of trees that need trimming before a big storm, we can handle all jobs-big or small.
We have information about tree removal in Woodinville below. We’ve familiar with all the requirements from the City and will handle any permit applications or tree inventories that are necessary. It’s our job!
In Woodinville, all properties are required to meet a certain level of tree density, which is measured by the species and size of the tree. The size of the tree is measured by the DBH or diameter at breast height (4.5 feet above the ground). Tree credits are based on these 2 criteria so the larger the tree, the higher the credit.
Most tree removals require a permit, including hazard and nuisance tree removal. Tree removals are divided into categories or tree plans though Tree Plan 4 is the one most Woodinville homeowners need to worry about as that pertains to removing trees on your property, including healthy trees, trees in critical areas and hazard trees.
2 healthy trees may be cut down within any 12-month period. An unlimited number of hazard or nuisance trees may be cut (with an arborist report and permit), but if more than 2 of these type of trees are removed, no additional healthy trees can be cut down within the same 12-month period.
You may also be required to replant to keep your tree density at the required limit.
If an arborist report is needed (as when cutting down hazard trees), it must be done and filed by an arborist certified by the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) and the arborist needs to have a secondary certification in tree risk assessment.
FYI-If you need a permit, a tree inventory must also be submitted with the completed permit application. It includes a list of trees on your property along with their species and diameter of the trunk measured at 4.5 feet from the ground. A partial inventory is acceptable if all required tree credits have been confirmed.

“I had a huge tree that needed to be taken down. The crew that arrived did an excellent job and if the wood hadn't been stacked nearby you would not have known that they had taken a tree (approximately 140' tall) down. Clean-up was excellent. The whole experience was great.”
