Tree pruning and felling

Authorizations for the pruning and felling of trees not connected to building works are requested from the Municipality in which the territorial area affected by the works falls.

Ordinary tree pruning does not require a permit.

However, authorization from the municipal administration is mandatory for:

  • extraordinary pruning interventions, which alter the natural shape of the foliage and the structure of the tree individuals
  • felling of trees subject to protection
  • felling of trees or pruning of branches to resolve an imminent danger to the safety of people or things, therefore with a motivated urgency. In this case, the operation must be promptly communicated to the competent municipal offices in the hours following the intervention.
