The Board of Appeals has approved a plan to move a redwood tree at 95 Norhoff.


Thirteen months ago the board denied a permit to remove the tree so that the lot could be subdivided into four individual parcels of property.

The board reconsidered the matter in April, but deadlocked 2-2 with an absent board member.

On August 17, 2016 the Board of Appeals approved a plan to move the tree in a 3-2 vote.

The developer has contacted EDI, a Texas-based company, considered one of the preeminent tree moving company in the world. According to the developer, the company has previously moved trees in northern California and in multiple other areas, which what it says is a 98% success rate.
