Paying online?

The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system.  As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept payments from non-current browsers. If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.

Tree Service Contractors

Division IV of Denver's Vegetation Ordinance (Chapter 57) requires that anyone performing tree care services including pruning and removing be licensed as a "Tree Service Company."

When requesting services, ask to see evidence of license from prospective companies. Denver recognizes two classifications of tree services. The General License enables its holder to perform services to any sized tree. The Ornamental License allows its holder to perform services to small vegetation only.
