The City of Venice is in the process of revising the City Code of Ordinances regulating trees.

Through an interlocal agreement between the City of Venice and Sarasota County, all trees are currently under the jurisdiction of the Sarasota County Environmental Department.

In the coming months, once the revised ordinance has been approved by City Council, the City of Venice will assume responsibility for permitting tree removal and trimming.

At this time, for questions regarding tree removal and trimming, contact Sarasota County Environmental Protection at 941-861-5000.
