Today’s photo shows a Live Oak tree in the front yard of a home on Seabrook Island. It impressed me the effort that was taken to save the tree. Personally, I think this was very admirable.
Actually a little research found the the Town of Seabrook Island has fairly extensive landscaping rules which include:
- no more than thirty percent (30%) of the tree canopy of the property .. shall be removed.
- No living tree which is twelve (12″) inches or more in diameter at a point four and one-half (4½) feet above ground level may be removed or relocated without a removal permit.
Following is a link to the municipal code ARTICLE 10. – BUFFERS, LANDSCAPING, AND TREE PROTECTION. Also, a link has been included for today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption Live Oak tree in the front yard of a home on Seabrook Island in South Carolina.
