Trimming of trees will be permitted only when and in the manner authorized by a permit issued pursuant to this chapter, that the shapeliness of the tree may be preserved.
An application for removal of a tree will be approved and permit issued only when a necessity for removal exists, and adjacent property owners concur, or when deemed necessary by the city engineer. When a tree is removed under authority of a permit, the entire stump shall be taken out for a distance of at least two feet (2') below the ground surface unless otherwise specified in the permit, and the hole backfilled and tamped. All debris from trimming or removal shall be removed from the site and the right of way restored to its former condition. (Ord. 994, 5-26-1970)
