Creating and maintaining defensible space around homes is critical to helping manage.
Trees not between the house and the lake only need a tree removal permit if they are live trees greater than 14 inches DBH. Trees of any size that were planted or retained as part of a permit, or that are in a Stream Environment Zone or backshore area, require a permit for removal.
The backshore area is the sensitive area adjacent to the Lake. Jun 07, Grand Trees (32” or greater in DBH) require special circumstances for removal – if the tree is not in hazardous condition, it may require a Variance Review Board, City Council, or other public process decision to allow the removal.
A tree removal permit is required for any tree 15” DBH (which stands for “diameter at breast height, the standard for tree diameters measured at feet above the ground) and larger.
DBH has traditionally been the sweet spot on a tree where measurements are taken and where a multitude of calculations are made to determine things like growth, volume, yield and forest potential.
You calculate DBH my taking this measurement, then dividing the circumference of the trunk by (or 22/7 or"pi."). Tree Removal & Replacement Up to 30” DBH Up to 15” DBH Up to 4 Trees ≥ 2½” caliper Up to Up to 2 Trees ≥ 3” caliper Tree Credits No No Yes Yes Tree Banking Arbor/Tree Fund No Yes Yes Yes Yes Based on the removal of one tree on a property meeting the requirements in any one jurisdiction, not.
It is very likely that the real costs will differ in your community. Once you have a local estimate of tree removal and stump grinding costs for a size range (egper inch for trees with a DBH range of 3 to 6 inches) the cost for removing one 5" DBH tree and its stump would be:(or 5 X ).
