Any person or property owner granted permission to remove a tree from tree lawns or public places for the purpose of construction shall replace the removed tree or trees with a species designated on the Master Street Tree Plan as part of the City’s Street Tree Program. The person or property owner shall bear the cost of replacing all trees removed. Projects initiated by the Municipality shall have the replacement costs included in the project costs. Trees removed by the City or in board-controlled places are to be replaced. Replacing trees in the same location is not necessary and sometimes not practical. The City shall only pay for tree replacement when the original tree was part of the City’s Street Tree Program funded by the original developer.
