The ordinance is intended to maintain the city’s diverse tree population, officials said.
Among other requirements, it mandates a permit for the removal of any tree of 15-inch DBH (diameter at breast height) and larger; for any small canopy tree, such as dogwood or redbud, 8 inches or larger; and for any tree within a landscape or stream buffer. Homeowners also may be required to plant new trees. Information: https://bit.ly/3i8ROJH
