Arborists License

In 2019, the City of Aberdeen developed an Ordinance that requires anyone doing commercial tree work on private property within city limits to be licensed. Licensing is administered through the Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department. If a property owner hires someone to treat, trim and or remove trees, the person doing the work must possess a current license. For additional information, please see the requirements below or contact the City Forester.
