Henry Curtis, 11755 Cenegal, Atascadero, CA 93422
PLN 2010-1386 / Tree Removal Permit 2010-0145
8455 Santa Rosa Road, Atascadero, CA 93422 APN 056-301-039 (San Luis Obispo County)
The applicant has requested removal of one (1) 50-inch DBH Valley Oak tree located approximately 15 feet from residence #N in the Atascadero Christian Home complex. The tree has been evaluated by an arborist and it has been determined that the tree has significant decay in the majority of the scaffolding branches and large cavities in the main branches. Due to the location of the tree in close proximity to a residence, the potential failure of limbs creates a hazardous situation. The tree is proposed for removal with mitigation for replanting of eight (8) 5 gallon native trees on site.
