Yes. A tree removal permit shall be required for the removal, replacement, or alteration of trees unless specifically exempted (see exemptions below). Alteration includes damaging, topping, root pruning, cutting, hatracking, poisoning, or grade change that can be expected to adversely affect the health of protected trees and vegetation. A tree removal permit can be applied for through our on-line portal under Planning and Zoning applications.

Yes, the replacement of more than 25% of the linear feet of fence will require a permit. Please ensure that you have a scaled survey as a part of your application that shows where your proposed fence will be located - this is very important!
Fence requirements can be found in LDC 5.3.3.
There are many areas that have a "Longwood" mailing address that are not actually in the incorporated City limits of Longwood. If you are in an unincorporated area, you will actually do your permitting through Seminole County.
One way you can check is by searching your address or parcel number at the Seminole County Property Appraiser's GIS site.
A quick shorthand is that any property located west of I-4, including the Wekiwa Springs and Jamestown areas, or any property with a 32779 zip code, are not located within the City of Longwood.
