All requests for approval must include a property sketch indicating the on-site location of the vegetation or individual trees to be removed. Requests submitted without a sketch may be rejected.
Requests for the removal of individual trees (only) that are submitted with photos and a narrative description detailing the need for removal may be processed expeditiously.
Individual trees proposed for removal must be marked with flagging, tape or paint for inspection purposes. Do not remove trees or vegetation until a signed/approved copy of the VMP is received.
Post the approved VMP (or have a copy available on-site) when work is being performed. This is required for inspection purposes.
If there is an open Building or Grading Permit, the requested VMP may be rejected and the applicant will be instructed to revise the open permit.
If the VMP is for a non-structural, non-impervious pathway, a site plan indicating the size and area of work must be submitted. Disturbance for access must be less than 5,000 square feet. Any disturbances greater than 1,000 square feet may be referred to the Grading and Inspections Division.
