MARINA DEL REY
TREES & BIRD NESTING
APPLY FOR A MARINA TREE WORK PERMIT
Pursuant to the Tree Management Policy (No. 34) contained in the “Important Biological Resources” chapter of the Marina del Rey Land Use Plan (LUP), the Department requires all lessees to submit an application and obtain approval prior to the start of any tree pruning and/or removal work.
The purpose of the requirement is to protect the habitat of colonial water birds and raptors that utilize the trees in Marina del Rey for foraging, nesting and roosting. Trees are defined under the Policy’s Section 4.13 as “a palm or a plant having a permanently woody main stem or trunk, ordinarily growing to a height over eight (8) feet and usually developing branches at some distance from the ground.”
