SELECTIVE VEGETATION REMOVAL (SVR)

The selective vegetation removal permitting program, along the North Carolina Highway System, is based upon the following General Statutes and North Carolina Administrative Code:

Monetary Value of Trees (only for outdoor advertising sites):

In accordance with Article 7 of Chapter 136 of the General Statutes, G.S. 136-93.2 "Monetary Value of Trees", the published monetary value for existing trees removed and eligible for reimbursement to the Department as provided in G.S. 136-93 or G.S. 136-133.1 from State rights-of-way is $75.00 per caliper inch. This value shall be used in calculating the monetary value of existing trees removed from State rights-of-way. Existing trees are defined in G.S. 136-133.1. Business facility SVR permits abide by different tree removal criteria and are not subject to the “Monetary Value of Trees” reimbursement.  

COMPLETED SVR PERMIT APPLICATIONS (ORIGINAL HARD COPY AND ELECTRONIC COPY) SHOULD BE SENT TO THE DIVISION ROADSIDE ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEER IN THE APPLICABLE HIGHWAY DIVISION. SEE FOLLOWING LINKS FOR CONTACT INFORMATION:  

  • Performance and Indemnity Bonds - See specific requirements on application Form SVR-1. Bond forms to be used are as follows:
