What policies are in place for replacing two trees with new trees in my front yard that both have wind/lightning damage? Are there city policies along with HOA policies that need to be approved/followed. Thank you.

For occupied residential properties the City's Zoning Ordinance requires the following:
The number of required trees varies depending on lot size; however for the standard size residential lot, two shade trees are required.
Trees must be three inches caliper.
Trees shall be chosen from the City recommended tree list (Link to the list below).
Trees maybe placed anywhere on the property.
In some new neighborhood's parkway trees are required.
HOA's may have additional requirements.
Darell Bagley or myself would be pleased answer any additional questions.
