Many municipalities are switching from a license requirement system to a list of valued trees that may not be taken down without a licence. (The license is now called: “Omgevingsvergunning voor het vellen van houtopstand”). Please consult with your municipality if a tree felling license is still required or even more easily, check online. Or, you can fill out our quotation request form and we will gladly do a free license check for you.
