1193.01 PURPOSE AND INTENT.

The Village of Granville lies in a valley and foothill landscape. Over time, many trees have grown or been planted by residents in the community. These trees, native and imported, provide beauty and protection from summer heat, increase property values, enhance community pride, preserve wildlife habitat, reduce air and noise pollution, and reduce soil erosion. Granville has earned the designation as a "Tree City USA" in recognition of the Village’s unique stewardship of this vital resource. Accordingly, the Village has determined that it is necessary for the public health and welfare to conserve tree resources by protecting trees from unnecessary destruction or removal, encouraging the replacement of trees lost to disease, natural hazards, or human intervention. The Village has also determined that street trees, park trees, and other trees on public lands contribute to the quality of life in the community. Chapter 1193, Tree and Landscape Requirements, provides for the improvement and maintenance of the appearance and safety of and the protection, preservation, and promotion of the aesthetic appeal, character and value of the Village of Granville. The intent of this ordinance is to establish mechanisms and policies for maintaining public trees so that the community may continue to enjoy the many benefits associated with trees.

The following definitions are only for the purposes of this Chapter.

 

(a) "Large tree" means any tree species, which normally attains a full-grown height equal to or greater than fifty feet.

909.03 PROPERTY OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR REMOVAL OF TREE ON PRIVATE PROPERTY.

The owner of any real estate within the Municipality shall be responsible for the removal of any trees located on the owner's property, excluding public right of way. If all or any portion of a tree on an owner's property is deemed unsafe or otherwise undesirable and overhangs a street or public property, the Manager or the Manager’s designee may notify the owner in writing to remove that tree or portion thereof. If the owner does not comply within fifteen days after receipt of such notice, the Municipality may cause to be removed all, or the endangering portion of such tree, and assess the cost to the owner.

 

909.04 REMOVAL OF TREES WITHIN A PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY; NOTICE; APPEAL.

(a) Any tree and/or portion thereof located within the public right of way shall be caused to be removed by the Municipality after notification to the abutting and adjacent property owners as provided in this Section that retention of the tree or portion thereof is deemed by the Municipality to be unsafe or not in the public interest. Any such removal shall be accomplished by the Municipality or its agents at the sole expense of the Municipality, and the Municipality shall determine the method of disposing of the cut wood, which wood shall be the property of the Municipality

 

(b) Notification. Unless the Village Manager should decide that immediate removal of a tree is required to protect the public health, safety, and welfare, the Manager or the Manager’s designee shall notify abutting and adjacent property owners and/or residents within one hundred (100) feet, as measured along the street frontage, of the proposed tree removal.

The Village staff shall use reasonable efforts and methods to provide notice of such determination before any removal of the tree, if removal is the final determination.

 

909.05 TREE REMOVAL CRITERIA

(a) Tree Removal Criteria. Loss of trees results in less shade, increased negative impacts due to air and noise pollution, reduced wildlife habitat, and a less attractive community.

If any tree is removed, treated or trimmed as provided in this section at the expense of the abutting property owner, then such wood shall be the property of the abutting property owner. The property owner shall promptly remove or cause to be removed all wood from the public property or public right of way based upon recommendations from the Municipality.

 

(b) The Village Manager may condition the granting of a permit upon the payment of compensation for the tree removed, as reasonably determined by Village Manager, and/or the replacement of the tree removed by the planting of one or more trees of a specie and in a location approved by the Village Manager upon recommendation by the Tree and Landscape Commission.

 

909.07 BREAKING OR INJURING TREE IN PUBLIC WAY.

No person, firm or corporation shall move, remove, destroy, break, cut, deface, trim or in any way injure or interfere with any tree or shrub growing in any public way of the Municipality except by written permit of the Manager or the Manager’s designee.

909.11 STANDARDS FOR TREES

Any person, firm, or corporation planting trees along Village right of way shall do so in a manner, quantity and location as determined by the Village Manager upon the recommendation of the Tree & Landscape Commission.
