Permits will be granted only where tree removal will not adversely affect the intent of this Section or the utility and character of the overall foliage of the parcel or lot in question.
b. 
In no case will removal of trees exceed the standards for steep slopes or woodland protection within §§ 903.B.4 and 5.
c. 
The permit provisions of this Section shall not apply to a landowner who wishes to remove an individual tree not in conjunction with a land development or building permit.
