TREES, TREES, TREES
The RoundHill Road tree controversy highlights the need for the town to tighten up our current tree preservation legislation. Current penalties for illegal removal of trees are much too low. I believe that after the first offense that illegal tree removal should be subject to criminal - not civil penalties....also believe that contractors who remove trees illegally should also be subject to penalties (not just the property owner). Intend to ask the CAC to review what happened at Round Hill Road and to make recommendations so we can have a much better law....
