The purpose of this Chapter is to preserve and protect saguaro cacti within the corporate limits of the Town for the following reasons:

A. Saguaro cacti within the Town are a unique natural resource promoting tourism and contributing to the aesthetic well being of the community.

B. Saguaro cacti are an integral part of the Sonoran Desert, contributing to high property values, high quality of life and a unique lifestyle that the community enjoys.

C. Saguaro cacti are important in providing habitat and protection for desert wildlife.

D. Saguaro cacti are drought tolerant, require little maintenance and use less water than other types of landscape plants.

E. A saguaro cactus is slow growing and cannot always be successfully relocated. Certain specimen plants, because of their form, age or location, cannot be replaced by a plant of like character.
