The area to remain undisturbed shall be identified on the final plat for the subdivision. Minor clearing may be allowed in this area for a passive trail system or approved amenity area. Selective removal of trees is permitted that are dead or dying, an invasive species, or must be removed for safety reasons, such as a falling hazard. 6.
