Last chance to comment on tree ordinance
Original post made by Andrea Gemmet on Dec 7, 2006
Key provisions of the ordinance include:
* requiring property owners to get permits before removing a tree
* limiting the circumstances under which property owners can remove "significant" trees
* fining property owners who remove trees without permits
* protecting some slow-growing native tree species by defining them as "significant" at a smaller trunk circumference than other types of trees.
A staff report is available on the town's web site: Web Link
