Tree & Site Clearing

Tree & Site Clearing

Trees enhance property values and make cities more attractive.  The City of Belton has a policy to preserve protected trees, which are trees with a diameter at breast height of 8 inches or more.  It is unlawful to remove a Protected Tree without an approved permit from the Planning Department. There exceptions to this rule.
A Site Clearing Permit is the first step toward receiving permission to remove trees or brush. Find that application here.
