From the City of North Myrtle Beach - Illegal Tree Cutting

From the City of North Myrtle Beach:
The City is aware, and code enforcement officers are responding, that some homeowners are taking advantage of Hurricane Florence to have hardwood and other protected trees cut on their properties. Their contractors are also placing the debris at curbside for the City to pick up. (Example of both: Tree cutting occurring on Golf View Drive.)
First, it is illegal to cut protected trees without a permit from the City and homeowners who allow this to happen face a fine.
Second, if your contractor or hired help places debris at curbside, the City will not pick it up and the homeowner will have to arrange for their own pickup.

For more information, please call Paul Blust at 843-280-5563 or come to City Hall and the Planning Department and request that someone come out to review your tree-cutting plans.
