Landscaping & Arborist reports (two reports in one PDF)
Three mature trees are being removed:
1. A massive Garry Oak –it is 80 cm / 32’ across the trunk at chest height*
2. A big arbutus – it splits to two trunks that are 20cm & 18 cm / 8” & 7” in diameter
3. A big birch (behind Threshold House) that is 30 cm / 12 in diameter
* Technical term is DBH – diameter at breast height, which is usually standardised to be at 1.3m / 4’ above ground level.
Replacement Garry Oaks are to be ‘sticks’ with 5cm / 2” diameter trunks with root balls wrapped in burlap. (This is what 5cm cal, b&b on the report means.). Here is a photo of a Garry Oak thay is approximately 10 cm / 4” cal.
