Tree & Site Clearing
The City of Belton believes trees have a positive economic effect by enhancing property values and making the City more attractive.  Therefore, a policy has been established to preserve Protected Trees.  It is unlawful to remove a Protected Tree without an approved permit from the Planning Department. Simply, a tree having a Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) of 8 inches or more is considered a Protected Tree. There are exceptions to this rule that you can read here (Section VI.A.3.b) 
A Site Clearing Permit is the first step toward receiving permission to remove trees or brush. Find that application here.
