What is Tree Mitigation?
Tree Mitigation is the compensation for removing protected trees from a construction site. All cities have tree preservation plans and ordinances to help protect and ensure the sustainability of community forests. As part of the tree preservation plan, cities require tree mitigation to restore the site’s green space. The specific regulations for protected tree removal and mitigation vary from city to city. As a sustainable tree care company, TreeNewal offers tree mitigation services to protect existing trees, minimize compliance costs, and assist builders and homeowners with meeting local tree preservation ordinances.
Our ISA Certified Arborist plays a significant role in assisting homeowners, developers, and commercial businesses facilitate the city of Dallas’s tree preservation and mitigation requirements. Trees are impacted through removals, damage to trees, compaction, trenching, excavation, and other site activities. We also offer proactive tree services that will enhance the sustainability of trees kept on the property. TreeNewal is dedicated to educating customers about the importance of tree mitigation and helping with lowering mitigation fees, and navigating the Dallas tree reforestation process.
How Does Dallas Tree Mitigation Work?
Once the permit for protected tree removal is granted, residential and commercial property owners are responsible for paying the rate or planting trees to mitigate the loss of the tree removed.
Dallas assigns a dollar rate for each caliper inch of trees removed with a standard tree rate of a tree at $82 per inch, but the exact reforestation value depends on an appraisal of the tree species and size.
The replacement tree species must be approved by the city of Dallas and planted on the same lot.
- The trees must comply with the replacement ratio based on the size and classification of the removed tree.
- If the conditions make tree planting on the site impractical, the options for tree mitigation in Dallas are:
- Planting within one mile
- Granting a conservation easement
- Donating trees to the city
- Payment to the Dallas Reforestation Fund
The tree mitigation process is complex and can be challenging to navigate without the expertise of a Dallas tree service company. TreeNewal offers tree surveys and tree mitigation services to residential and commercial property owners in North Texas. As part of our tree mitigation plan, our ISA Certified Arborists inspect tree health and evaluate the condition of the trees on a construction site. If the protected tree is dying, has significant decay, or is infested or diseased and must be removed, a Certified Arborist will assist in lowering mitigation fees and help property owners conform to local tree preservation ordinances.
