Native Plant Preservation Ordinances have been enacted within Pima County, Marana, Oro Valley, and the City of Tucson to promote the preservation of native plants and native plant communities within their jurisdictions. The ordinances include comprehensive requirements (species, size, health, transplantability) for the preservation-in-place, transplanting-on-site, or removal-from-site of protected native plants and specify the mitigation requirements for the transplanting or removal of inventoried species.
