Vegetation - Trimming and Cutting                     

A permit is required to cut or trim vegetation in front of any lawful sign.  A vegetation permit application will need to be completed and submitted to the appropriate area office.  The cost of a permit for trimming and cutting is determined by the vegetation to be removed.  Permits will only allow the cutting of vegetation necessary to clear the sign's visibility zone as determined by the permit inspector and the applicant at the time the permit is issued.
