   (b)    Plan to be on site; field markings. A copy of the approved forest conservation plan must be available on the site for inspection by representatives authorized by the Planning Director.

   (c)    Required inspections.
      (1)   The Planning Department must conduct the 7 field inspections specified in this subsection at each site.
      (2)   The Planning Director must inspect each site that is subject to an approved forest conservation plan:
         (A)   after the limits of disturbance have been staked and flagged, but before any clearing or grading begins;
         (B)   after necessary stress reduction measures have been completed and the protection measures have been installed, but before any clearing or grading begins;
         (C)   after all construction activities are completed, to determine the level of compliance with the approved plan;
         (D)   before any required reforestation and afforestation planting is started;
         (E)   after required reforestation and afforestation have been completed, to verify the planting is acceptable and begin the maintenance and management period;
         (F)   2 years after reforestation and afforestation have been completed, to determine survival and assess necessary maintenance activities for the remaining duration of the maintenance and management period; and
         (G)   at the end of the maintenance and management period, to determine the level of compliance with the planting plan and, if appropriate, authorize release of financial security.
      (3)   The Planning Director must conduct inspections under subparagraphs (A) through (C) of paragraph (2) of this subsection for a confirmed exemption from submitting a forest conservation plan.
