Have you had a subcontractor move tree protection fencing and accidentally damage a tree? Did it cost you time and money in the form of delays, extra inspections, project revisions or fines? Good news: the required fencing will help keep tree protection in place so that you avoid damage to trees during construction.
Seattle DCI will require that tree protection notice signs be posted for all trees requiring protection on construction sites. This requirement will be effective on January 1, 2017.
The Tree Protection Area sign is a part of Seattle DCI’s continuing effort to ensure that contractors and construction workers understand and comply with our requirements for tree protection as part of the approved building permit. The tree protection area is typically defined by the drip line or extent of tree canopy.
