What if I need to remove trees in association with a home addition or other development project?

In this case, a separate Tree Permit is not required. The removal can be reviewed concurrent with the underlying construction permit(s) but must meet the Tree Canopy Coverage and Minimum Tree Retention criteria in IMC 18.812.060 and 18.812.070, respectively. Replacement Trees may be required.
