‘Tweaking’ Tree Survey

To the Editor:

I write regarding your article “If a Tree Survey Falls . . .” in the Feb. 15 issue. You say “However, council members were of different views about the desirability of the health assessment component.” We all support the survey’s health assessment; it’s risk assessment of street trees that we were debating. The title of the article and the expression “back to the drawing board” in the last paragraph imply some kind of major setback. Actually, it’s a fairly minor tweaking that should save the Borough money and potential liability.

The Environment Committee will take up this matter at our meeting, February 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Borough Council room. We anticipate approval of the Street Tree Survey at the March legislative meeting of Borough Council.
