Seabrook Island Tree Ordinance
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 as provided for hereinafter. Trees that require such permit for removal or relocation shall hereinafter be called “protected” trees.
Applications for removal or relocation shall be approved by the Zoning Administrator only as to protected trees that pose a safety hazard; are weakened by disease, age, storm, fire, or other injury; or which prevent the reasonable development of the lot. Protected trees shall not be removed or relocated for the purpose of locating utility lines and connections unless no reasonably practical alternative is available.
