What about landmark tree replacement?

Whenever a Tree Removal Permit is issued for the removal of any landmark tree with a D.B.H. of 6 inches or greater, trees must be relocated or replaced by the permit grantee. Every landmark / historic tree that is removed needs to be replaced by 3 trees with a minimum D.B.H. of 4 inches. Size used to determine "landmarks" are determined by species.
