Report a dead tree

Philadelphia Parks & Recreation removes dead and hazardous street trees when needed. To report a dead tree please fill out the Street Tree Maintenance Request form. 

After you have filled out your request form, someone will contact you.

You may also hire a certified arborist to maintain your street trees. Contractors must get a tree work permit from the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Street Tree Management office by calling (215) 685-4362 or (215) 685-4363.

For downed trees that have fallen, you should not use this service. Instead, you should call 911.  For more information see our page on storms and downed trees.
