If the circumference of your tree (or combined circumference for multi-stemmed trees) is <50 inches, this tree removal form is NOT required.
How to Measure:

What is basal area?
At 54" above grade, measure the circumference of each stem. Add all of these measurements together. This is the basal area. If the total is >199 inches, you must submit a removal form.
