Hazard Tree Removal
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Work will remove selected limbs from the east side of the tree to balance the canopy and increase safety; remove all but the stump of the tree after bird nesting season (August 30) if possible; if removal must occur during the nesting season and a nest is present, removal will occur after young have fledged; replace the tree with acorns, a cutting or a sapling harvested from beneath or within the tree from the existing tree.
