[The Protected Tree Ordinance requires that the City must plant a new tree “of the same species and number from nursery stock in such location as shall be designated by the City Tree Board”.  (In this case, that would be one tree.)  The SmartCode, Section 1.6, provides that if a protected tree is removed it shall be replaced by three trees of the same species with a minimum of ten-inch circumference measured four foot from the ground.  The SmartCode provides that it does not amend the Tree Ordinance and in the event of a conflict between the zoning ordinance and protected tree ordinance the stricter provision will apply.  If the Board determines there is a conflict between the ordinances, the Board would have to apply the stricter requirement for three replacement trees. Nevertheless, the City can waive any of these requirements if it chooses to do so.]  A-9.
