Are you developing a property in Saanich?
- Make sure you are aware of our Tree Protection Bylaw
- A permit is required to remove, alter or work within the root zone of protected trees - a development permit is required first and once a permit has been processed, Saanich Parks will be contacted regarding any tree permits needed - you do not apply for a tree permit separately for development sites
