Do I need a permit to remove trees in Manzanita, Oregon?

The short answer is yes. Manzanita requires a permit to remove a tree within the city limits. They define a tree as any woody plant with a stem larger than 6 inches in diameter and at least 4 and a half feet tall. There is no permit application online. They have required a drawing of the lot with outlines of existing trees and structures and a written plan describing which tree will be removed, and if another tree will be planted to replace it.
