How did it happen? Who "approved" it? Where was the Shade Tree Commission Chairperson? Where was the Borough Councilor Liaison to the Shade Tree Commission? Where was the Borough Parks and Property Councilor? Where were the Code Enforcer? Borough Police? Borough Manager?
The excessive removal of live branches shown is a violation of the Borough Shade Tree Ordinance and Arboricultural Standards. Several other violations accompanied this action, including driving heavy equipment on the root zone of several trees, and dumping large piles of debris onto root zones of existing trees in the Park.
