Buffer Strip Tree Removal

May 23 , 2017


Now that spring is here some of us will find that we need to remove some dead trees from the buffer strip.  Following is the procedure to use and relevant contact information... Eric Null,  L ake Manager, Deep Creek Lake NRMA, Maryland Park Service  Department of Natural Resources, says that "The process for tree removal or trimming is to call Lake Management and make an appointment for staff to assess the proposed trees. Staff will visit the site and determine if the tree warrants trimming or removal. Staff will photograph and record each tree, then mark the tree with paint. Lake Management Regulations do not allow for the removal of healthy living trees. Any tree that is marked for removal and still alive will be required to be replaced at at least 2:1." If you have any questions please call Eric at 301-387-4112 (office) or send them to him at
