Reporting a violation

If you witness a potential violation in an easement, use the above application to notify us. Typical violations include:

  • Mowing, grading or paving, or removal of understory in a Forest Conservation Easement
  • Construction of permanent structures in either a Forest Conservation Easement or a Tree Save Easement
  • Clearing or grading more than 5,000 square feet outside an easement also may be a violation. Forest conservation requirements may be necessary, so contact the Planning Department prior to starting any activity

You can find the forest conservation inspector for an area on our inspection area map.
