Trimming Trees



Trees located on public property such as streets or allies may be trimmed by The Department of Public Works at the request of a citizen. Please contact the Public Works liaison at 868-5751.

Trees located on residential property (regardless of type of tree) can be trimmed or removed as the owner desires. NO permits are required to trim or remove trees on residential property in the City of Gulfport. However, the owner is responsible for removal of all debris associated with the trimming or removal of the tree(s), not the City. Trimming or removal of trees located on all other types of property must be completed through the Urban Development, Planning & Zoning Office at 868-5710.
