Removal or replacement of any tree, which is not like for like, will require an ARB.
Street Tree removal may require a permit from Hillsborough County. The approved street trees for the Waterleaf neighborhood shall be:
- Southern Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)
- Florida Maple (Acer floridanum)
- Red Maple (Acer rubrum)
- Winged Elm (Ulus alata)
Live Oak (Quercus virginiana) was withdrawn as an approved tree in June 2021 when Hillsborough County changed its Street tree list. Pre-existing Live Oaks are therefore grandfathered in.
Street trees shall at a minimum size of 4-inch caliper, measured at a height of 4 feet six inches above grade, 14-foot height (minimum) and 6-foot spread (minimum) with a full canopy and straight trunk.
For approved yard trees see the Hillsborough County approved tree webpage.
