About Joshua Tree Surveys
Joshua tree surveys are a study for the census of Joshua trees on a parcel of property. They are a significant resource under the California Environmental Quality Act. Joshua trees are also part of the Desert Plant Protection Act, Food and Agricultural Code.
The purpose of a Joshua tree survey is to gather information on each tree such as location, height, size, general health, and more. Furthermore, this information helps us to know which trees are suitable for transplanting out of a project’s footprint. Lastly, it is put into a detailed report for the project proponent. RCA Associates, Inc. helps conduct the transplanting of Joshua trees on or off a project site after the proper permits (if required) are issued.
Note: Please refer to the City and/or County development code to find out if special permits are required for transplanting.
