Specimen Tree

Trees with a 18” or larger DBH (diameter at breast height, 4 ½ ft. from the ground) is considered a specimen. Double the mitigation would be required for trees with a 24” DBH or larger.

Tree mitigation plan

The total number of trees required for replacement shall be based on the canopy loss area calculated. Trees with a 24” DBH or larger, will require double the mitigation.

Canopy credits can be reviewed at the Tree Ordinance - Sec. 82-30, Table 82-1 Replacement Tree Canopy credits. The applicant shall submit a site plan that includes the proposed location of all replacement plantings, all property lines, and all proposed and existing structures, drain fields, driveways and utility easements. 

If the site cannot accommodate the required replacement trees because of insufficient planting area as determined by the tree preservation agency, then the applicant shall be required to contribute to the city tree trust fund. For each 500 SF of tree canopy deficit, the contribution will be $1,500.
