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.
DPD has updated the Construction Stormwater Control Plan and Post Construction Soil Management Plan, with a new tree and vegetation protection detail. The detail now includes the standard requirements to protect code-defined exceptional trees or any tree requiring protection during construction. It includes directions on who to contact when you may need to make field-identified modifications to the required tree protection zone.
