Live Oak
« on: August 08, 2011, 08:12:26 PM »
A couple of weeks ago while in Baton Rouge, La visiting a friend and we were talking about Live Oaks. She told me that it was against the law to cut a Live Oak if it was registered. I was not aware of this. What do you all know about this? bg

Some communities have laws against cutting the majestic liveoak trees registered with a local historical society. Not sure if there are any state or federal laws or registration for liveoak.

I think that in LA there is a restriction on Live Oak in terms of harvesting them or cutting them down.

You need a permit here if the circumference is greater than 6". Unless the tree is problematic you won't get one.  I have a big live oak whose roots are heaving the slab under a rental. So far no permit has been granted.

6" basically a shrub or sapling. We are a Tree City. The local American Legion put an addition on their bldg a few years ago and took out a couple very small oaks. City fined them over $100k.

This is for live oaks and a couple other protected species only.
