Removal of Trees

For any development, the City Planning Commission may authorize the removal of trees of six-inch caliper or more whose removal would otherwise be prohibited under the provisions of Section 107-32 (Tree Regulations), provided that the Commission makes one or more of the following findings:

(a)        that the tree's retention would cause serious disadvantage in the arrangement of open areas on the lot, impairing the usefulness of such areas;

(b)        that such tree is located in an area where more than two feet of cut or fill is required and measures for saving the tree would be extremely difficult and impractical; or

(c)        that provision of a segment of the waterfront esplanade is not feasible without such tree's removal.
