Tree Removal Process

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

The Town of Breckenridge requires that you consult a Planner prior to removing or cutting any trees, dead or alive, from your property.  Most tree removals require a Class D Minor development permit and can be processed fairly quickly. 

Tree removal for Defensible Space also requires consultation with the Planning Department.  Defensible Space is the area around a home or structure that has been modified to reduce fire hazard.  Click here to learn more about this topic. 

If you have any questions or concerns about trees on your property, please call the Planning Department at 970-453-3160, or send us an email at
