Cut more plant less.... No grand tree law where it would not protect huge tree from being cut like there sister county. http://www.lex-co.com/departments/commu ... LOSOrd.pdf . Page 40 said the Ordinance describes the category of trophy trees as those trees that are significant by their size and type and as such should be preserved wherever possible. Guidelines detailed within the Ordinance address the circumstances in which preservation of trophy trees is not feasible. The specifications for determining trophy trees are as follows: Canopy Trees, except:
Sweet-gum, Yellow-poplar, >24" D.B.H.
Understory Trees >12" D.B.H.
The specifications for trophy trees may be revised by staff upon direction by Lexington County.

Marcas, How are ya? In the last few years I've been finding more and more of new construction leaving the older trees. In La., Ms., Ala., and Fla., its about time. I always thought it was stupid to cut down everything build whatever and then plant twigs back! Larry
