Due to the recent winter storm, the Calvert County Department of Planning & Zoning will suspend tree removal permits through Friday, Jan. 28, 2022. During this time, citizens will not be required to obtain a permit to dispose of downed trees caused by the winter weather events during the week of Jan. 3, 2022. 

Citizens should take photos of the downed trees prior to removal and call a tree removal company or take proper precautions to safely remove debris. The event is for tree removal only. Grading and stump removal of any kind related to tree removal is subject to permit review. 

Citizens can contact Planning & Zoning at 410-535-2348 or pz@calvertcountymd.gov for questions or permit information.
