This written request must include: who will be cutting and cleaning up the tree or shrub, the exact location of the tree or shrub in question, why the request should be granted, when the scheduled work intends to start/end, and precisely how much cutting will be involved. A written permission or denial letter will follow.
NOTE: Weed-whacking, lawn mowing, using shears, hedge trimmers, etc. does not require preauthorization.
