Tree Ordinances

Often they are enacted in response to changes from rapid land development. Tree ordinances range in complexity from simple tree replacement standards to more comprehensive ordinances addressing natural resource issues.

Some ordinances apply to public property and the public right-of-way along streets, while others regulate tree loss and replacement on development projects.
