I'm clearing a lot to build a house. The lot is mostly Maples with a few Red Oaks and the soil is brown clay.
The Oak I'm concerned about is 26" dbh and stands about 90 ft. I know more is better but how far should the driveway be from the bottom of the tree?
Also - the same tree has a vertical scar about chest high that is 3 ft long. Is this something to worry about?
I have tired to include a few pics - hopefully they work and help. I have more pics if needed -
Thanks for any advice!!!
