Tree Cutting Permit

The City of Abbotsford's Tree Protection Bylaw No.1831-2009 is in place to preserve the tree canopy in Abbotsford. The City also has measures in place to ensure that all trees are healthy and viable and contribute positively to the natural environment. Trees are important in our community to help us sustain a healthy, natural environment.
