Ashland Tree Commission
July 8th, 2002
Call to Order
- At 5:00 p.m. the meeting was called to order by Acting Chair Bryan Nelson. Commissioners in attendance were Bryan Holley, January Jennings, Dan Moore and Laurie Sager. Also in attendance was staff Robbin Pearce.
Welcome Guests - Guests in attendance were welcomed.
- Planning Action 2002-083 (National Fish & Wildlife Forensics Lab). All Trees that are transplanted must be replaced if they die within 2 years. The plantings in the front which incorporate trees that are moved should allow adequate space: sugar maples a minimum of 30 feet; Japanese maples a minimum of 15 feet and vine maples can be packed together. Perennial rye with wildflowers will be a maintenance challenge. The mix should be refined to emphasize low maintenance and drought resistance.
- Planning Action 2002-062 (Clay Street Church of God). This plan should be refined to meet Site Design & Use Standards specifying a) what is to stay and what is to be removed, and b) size, quantities & species location. Also, could the multi-trunked tree on the west edge, south of the tree, which is proposed to remain, be kept? Be sure the shrubs along both north and south edges allow privacy screening. Submit irrigation plan.
Adjournment - Meeting adjourned at 6:30 p.m.
