CGVC Tree Permit Decision Reports: Appeals by 12 April

Tree Removal
YELLOW: Nine palm trees and two larger avocados are being removed from the lot, which will have a significant impact on urban tree canopy in the neighborhood.

Tree Mitigation
YELLOW: The mitigation plan could be improved. Four small buttonwoods and twenty Montgomery Palms are to be planted, which will not add substantial tree canopy, especially in the short term. The Paradise Tree is a great addition to the ROW, but we strongly suggest the planting of additional, larger specimens of native tree species on the property.

DO NOT APPEAL: The application is probably not worth an appeal given the exorbitant current appeal costs; but we request the owner consider additional plantings to offset the considerable loss of urban tree canopy in a neighborhood where major losses of canopy are being compounded.
