The Tree Preservation Bureau was created to better address the removal of private trees from properties within the Town, as well as enhance the protection of the Town’s tree resources.

Under the Town’s Tree Preservation Ordinance, any property owner proposing to remove a private tree on any property in the Town must file an application with the Highway Department not less than 10 days prior to the proposed tree removal date. An inspector will go to the site and determine whether or not a permit should be granted.
