Tree Ordinance to Be Redrafted

Glynn County’s Tree Ordinance committee met yesterday when they wrapped up the last of their concerns and asked Senior Assistant County Attorney Will Worley to have a draft ordinance ready for their next meeting on September 18. The issue that sparked the most debate was whether a permit should be required to cut down large, old live oaks. Private property owners will be allowed to cut down the large oaks, but will be required to go through a permitting process and replant a new live oak.
