Trees are important to a landscape because their root structure stabilizes the ground and reduces erosion. Shade from trees also reduces a property’s energy and water needs. Therefore, trees are an essential part of the landscaping code for the Town. Developers are required to provide a tree when building, and homeowners should endeavor to maintain their trees and other vegetation according to those landscape requirements.
Please refer to the Landscape and Irrigation Criteria Manual (PDF) for landscape requirements. Homeowners should also check for any homeowners association requirements related to trees and other landscaping.
Some homes may fall within an area subject to additional Skyline/Ridgeline Protection zoning regulations that have more specific vegetation requirements. View the Skyline/Ridgeline map (PDF).
