Q: When will SavATree be in my neighborhood?
A: Thecertified arborist is currently working along Overhill Road, Horton Drive, Brick Hill Road, Wilner Road, and Lakeshore Drive.
Next up will be Warren Street and Croton Falls Road.
Woods Road and Moseman Avenue neighborhoods are complete.
The Twin Knolls Drive area is completed.
Mahopac Avenue and Lake are inventoried.
(We’ll update this section as the SavATree team moves around Town.)
Q: What trees will be included in the Inventory?
A: Only trees along Town-owned roadways and in some Town-owned properties will be included. State-owned and private roads are excluded from the scope of the grant funding.
Q: Does this mean that the Town wants to cut down my trees?
A: No. But if a tree is unhealthy or dangerous, the Town may prioritize care and maintenance or proactive removal to prevent unsafe utility conflicts or other public safety conditions.
Q: How can I get involved?
A: You can submit a photo and short story about an iconic, historic, rare, or biologically important tree here to be included in the Community Forest Management Plan. If you’re interested in helping to organize a tree planting or other event, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: How much is this project costing the Town?
A: The Urban and Community Forestry grant from the NYS DEC covers the cost of the Tree Inventory and Community Forest Management Plan. The State funded the grant through the Environmental Protection Fund (EPF).
