The conditions under which permits shall be issued under this chapter are as follows:
(a) A permit for the cutting of trees shall not be issued by the Zoning Inspector in any case where such cutting of trees would result in interference with the natural water supply of the City or any of the lots or lands therein, or if it would result in the undue erosion of the soil on such lots of lands.
(b) A permit for the cutting of trees shall not be issued by the Zoning Inspector unless and until adequate assurance is furnished by the applicant that if such permit is granted and such cutting of trees is done, all of the cordwood, branches, brush, rubble and refuse resulting therefrom will be removed from the premises or cut up, chipped and placed on the forest floor in such a way that no fire hazard shall result therefrom.
(c) The Zoning Inspector is authorized to require the filing with the City by the applicant of a bond, the penal sum of which shall be in an amount which the Zoning Inspector reasonably estimates will be sufficient to pay the cost and expense of the clean-up operation.
(d) The bond hereinabove provided for shall be signed by the owner of the premises concerned and by each of the persons with whom arrangements have been made for the commercial cutting of the trees under contract or otherwise as principals, and by such sureties as the Zoning Inspector shall deem sufficient.
(e) A permit for the cutting of trees shall not be issued by the Zoning Inspector where trees are located within twenty-five (25) feet of a protected watercourse.
