At the beginning of the process, the applicant will submit a Forest Stand Delineation (FSD) to the Department of Planning and Zoning. A FSD shows and evaluates existing vegetation on a site proposed for development, taking into account the environmental elements that shape or influence the structure or makeup of a plant community.
After the FSD is approved, the applicant submits a preliminary Forest Conservation Plan (FCP). This plan provides specifics for retaining and protecting existing natural resource areas and provides for new tree plantings and their maintenance to ensure survival during construction.
