Cutting trees in ATL city limits to give more sun for gardening
My son and his fiance are looking to buy their first home in one of the intown neighborhoods like Grant Park, Ormewood Park or East Atlanta. Almost all the homes have big trees that shade the small lots, with very little sunny areas for small veggie gardens and flowers. Of course they also love the big trees, but would they be able to cut some of the smaller ones to give more sun to the yard? Seems like I remember something about having to get permits from the city to cut trees? Or is that for the front yard only? Or big trees only? Or am I dreaming? Could someone (GGG?) who lives intown please fill me in on the rules. That might affect the house they buy. They both are now avid wannabe gardeners with their apartment balcony totally filled with pots of flowers and veggies.
