Section 158-103(f): Quarterly Reports

Destroyed trees are not being counted because there are no quarterly reports.

Section 158-103(f) requires a quarterly report showing the total number and DBH of trees removed by various categories, including dead/dying/diseased/hazardous trees. The City Arborist Division used to produce these quarterly reports, but no longer does. Now we don’t know how many trees are being destroyed and why. And we don’t know how much money has been paid into the Tree Trust Fund via recompense fees and illegal tree cutting fines. How can the Arborist Division keep track of the resources that it is supposed to protect and replant without any data?

Sec. 158-103(f) The city arborist shall prepare a quarterly report to be presented to the tree conservation commission. The report shall include the total number and DBH of trees removed and/or the total number and DBH of trees replanted during the preceding quarter in each of the following categories: maximum recompense per acre, dead/dying/diseased/hazardous removal, landscaping permit, silvicultural removal, buildable area removal, parking lots, illegal removal, off-site planting, or any other permit or penalty category not listed. The report shall also include acreage, total number of trees and total DBH for any newly created conservation easements or newly created parklands.

Quarterly Reports Status Update

February 2, 2019:  According to the Reporter Newspapers, Elizabeth Johnson, Project Manager with the Department of Planning, said "the [quarterly] reports have not been produced due to the lack of a staff member who can code them into a newer city records software called Accela. An Accela administrator left in August and a replacement was scheduled to start in January. 'Reporting for the Office of Buildings, including the Arborist, is a main priority for this individual,' she said."

Our Response:

The departure of an Accela administrator in August 2018 does not explain why the Arborist Division has not produced a quarterly report since 2004.
