Sausalito's Tree Regs - and Whoops!

On the same day a eucalyptus fell down and went boom across Highway 101 in Sausalito, the City sent out a reminder of its tree regulations:

From the Marin IJ:


SAUSALITO

The city is reminding residents that there is a fine of up to $1,000 for altering, pruning, shaping, trimming, topping or removing any protected, heritage, dedicated or city-owned tree without a tree/alteration permit.

Among protected trees are any coast live oak on developed private property measuring 4 inches or more in diameter, trees with special significance as deemed by resolution of the City Council as well as city-owned trees.

When in doubt, call Lilly Schinsing at 289-4134 or email her at lschinsing@ci.sausalito.ca.us with questions.

Note: A eucalyptus is considered an "undesirable" tree in Sausalito and many other locations.  Know your local code!
