If you believe you need an extension, contact Forestry staff by email at LAShadeTreePest@lakevillemn.gov or call 952-985-2711 before your deadline lapses. Extensions up to two weeks may be granted when you provide the name of your hired contractor, property address and phone number. The site will be re-inspected for completion after your extension has ended. For those worried about the cost, there may be a way to spread out the removal costs on your taxes as a special assessment. For more information, call 952-985-2724.
