Tree Planting Ordinance
On March 29, 2016 the Board of Supervisors adopted the Tree Planting Ordinance that:
- Amended Title 22 (Planning and Zoning) of the Los Angeles County Code (“County Code”) to establish tree planting requirements for new projects; and
- Amended Title 21 (Subdivisions) and Title 22 (Planning and Zoning) of the County Code to repeal drought tolerant landscaping and green building requirements that are now found in Title 31.
The ordinance became effective on April 28, 2016. A copy of the adopted ordinance will be posted on this webpage when it is available.
