Tree damage penalty


The intent of this section is to emphasize the importance of trees to be saved, maintaining the park like setting of Bloody Point per the covenants of Bloody Point. All trees to be saved shall be maintained in an undamaged condition. Accidental damage due to dead trees falling, equipment breakdown, or any act on the part of the contractor and / or owner deemed by the ARB to be unavoidable would not warrant a penalty. However, the owner will be liable for consistent accidental damage to existing trees. Damage due to improper location of utility trenches or ditches will not be considered accidental. The owner will be responsible for damage on the part of the contractor, whether by method of excavation, use of improper equipment, incompetence of any operator or failure to properly inform operators as determined by the ARB.

All trees on site shall be saved except those specifically marked for removal with a red ribbon and on an ARB approved site plan / tree survey. No tree, either those marked for removal or any other tree may be removed prior to the ARB’s inspection and written approval. Trees will be rated by the ARB as to species, condition, and site importance with the following figures acting as maximum penalties and the minimum penalty amounting to no less than one-half these figures.
