§ 50-222. Removal and replacement of trees.  

Latest version.
  • (a)

    Trees shall not be removed in any protected zone unless the owner/developer documents an economic hardship if the trees in the protected zone were to be preserved. Such documentation shall be submitted as part of the application for a land disturbance permit. Nothing in this article shall be construed to allow the removal of vegetation in a designated, undisturbed buffer required by a condition of zoning.


    When no trees are present in the protected zone or when it is determined that any portion of the protected zone be disturbed, it shall be the responsibility of the owner/developer to replant as necessary such areas (where improvements are not constructed), as required in this article.
