What are landscaping credits?

A developer will receive credits for existing landscaping located in the required front and side landscaped yards, and in transitional buffers; this may result in fewer new tree and shrub plantings than would have been required otherwise. If a developer is planting new trees and shrubs at a project site, trees and shrubs are assigned numeric credits based on the size. For specific requirements, see

Section 24.1-242 (h)(1) of the Zoning Ordinance.
