Native Plant Survey
The Arizona Native Plant Act requires notification to the Arizona Department of Agriculture for the removal or destruction of native plants taken from their original growing site. Notification must take place 20 to 60 days prior to removal/destruction depending on the project area size. Native plants include, but are not limited to, all cacti and trees such as mesquite, palo verde, and ironwood.
I can work with you in determining what your project requirements are. I can perform a field survey providing a native plant inventory in your project area and depending on your course of action, tag plants for removal. I'll also walk you through the various applications and permits required by the Department.
The Arizona State Land Department requires compensation for perennial plants such as trees, shrubs, and cacti removed from Arizona State Trust land through right-of-way acquisition. I can provide surveys for these plants on Arizona State Trust Land within your project area. I'll handle coordination with the Department and prepare a stumpage assessment for submission with your right-of-way application.
Will you be removing or destroying native plants in the State of Arizona? I can provide you a native plant survey and take care of the permitting process for you. If you're working on State Lands and need a Stumpage Assessment, I can put that together too. Is there a concern you may have an endangered or threatened plant species in your project area? I'll get in the field and find out.
