Forest felling

Forest felling requires a landscape work permit in the town plan area and areas where there is a building prohibition to prepare a town plan or where the permit has been determined as mandatory to prepare or change a master plan. The operations also require a permit in the master plan and detailed shore plan areas, if the plan so dictates. A person carrying out earthworks, tree-felling or corresponding action altering the landscape is always responsible for ensuring that the necessary permits exist for the action. Application forms with instructions are available at the Environment and Technical Services customer service, they can be printed from the City of Espoo website, or the application can be submitted electronically through the electronic service for construction and land use. More detailed instructions can be found on the website of the City of Espoo.
