Process for removing a huge tree on lawn
We'd like to cut it down and plant something smaller in its place. Can anyone who has gone through this outline the process in removing this tree? The tree appears to be healthy so I'm unsure if that changes anything. Do we first need to get in touch with the City to obtain a permit and do we hire our own guys afterwards or does the City have their own contractors? Do these requests usually get turned down if the tree is in good health? And approximately how much am I looking at spending here?
The tree itself is around 3-4 stories tall, spans 50ft wide, and the trunk is around 3ft in diameter
This is in Toronto
