Do I need a permit to remove a tree in Pacific County?

The answer depends on a number of factors, like if it is on developed or undeveloped land, and if the tree is dead or poses a danger. If a tree is within falling distance of a structure, and is a "hazard" tree, it can be removed without a permit. The rules about hazard trees on undeveloped land are similar (see link). It is always best to hire a certified arborist, and contact the county administrator and speak with a planner.
