The January 18th wind storm has created an enormous amount of inconvenience to residents throughout the region and town. Many trees fell, causing power outages. There are a number of residents who are still without power. Businesses within Greenburgh and schools in Greenburgh have also been forced to close down because of the power outages.
An excellent suggestion has been made: for the town to sponsor a briefing for residents on diseased trees. How can we, as residents, be proactive? What steps should homeowners take to inspect their trees? What can you do to make trees stronger and healthier? What do you do if you suspect that your neighbor has a diseased tree—but your neighbor doesn’t want to take any proactive action?
At the February8thhTownBoard meeting I will ask that the first half hour of the meeting be devoted to tree safety information. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PMat GreenburghTown Hall. Meetings are televised live on cable. Residents can call in—993-1540. Please e mail me if you have questions that you would like to have answered at this proactive forum: firstname.lastname@example.org.
