The land use controls adopted by the municipalities must be consistent.

Environmental conditions that increase risk from hazard trees: Strong or gusty winds from storm cells. Air operations - water or retardant drops, rotor wash from helicopters.

Sumter County, FL.

Steep slopes with rolling material. Diseased or bug-killed areas (Mountain Pine Beetle). Fire weakened timber. Reduced visibility from smoke, fog or darkness.

Hazard Tree Indicators: Trees burning for any period of time. High-risk tree species (rot and shallow roots). Numerous downed trees in the area. Dead, broken, or burning tops and limbs overhead. Accumulation of downed limbs.

Fungus or growth of decay species on the tree. Cavities or evidence of woodpecker damage. Start with a degree notch on the side that the tree will fall towards. Cut the bottom of the notch first, about one third of the way through the diameter. The second cut is made at a degree angle that will meet the depth of the first cut. The felling cut should be made from the opposite side, about 2 inches higher than the floor of the notch.

May be caused by damaged roots or lifting root mats, shallow or wet soils. In some cases, the tree may have corrected itself which can be determined by looking for corrected top growth. Root Condition: Weakened roots may reduce felling control. Signs of decay or fungal conks on the roots, or fire weakened roots.

the tree is identified as a hazard or a risk. In the absence of conks, risk trees with less than 20 percent average sound shell thickness are marked for removal. Trees with an open wound require at least 25 percent average shell thickness for retention.

Can contribute to uneven weight distribution.

Otherwise, marked hazard trees are identified for monitoring rather than removal. These standards.
