Schedule of Public Meetings & Hearings
The proposed project involves removing all invasive trees less than 4" in diameter. Out of the 217 trees on the property, 145 are invasive and 116 are invasive trees between 0.5 and 4 inches. The invasive trees to be removed are primarily Norway maple (106), but there are also tree of heaven (6) and black locust (3). Some of the trees will be cut down and left to decompose in place. Others will be mulched and used as ground cover for the vegetable garden in front of the house. In addition to the removal of the invasive trees, other invasive plants will be removed including oriental bittersweet, garlic mustard and the small amount of Japanese knotweed on the property. Also, other native plants will be added included black chokeberry and serviceberry, which are currently being grown in pots on the property from suckers from existing plants.
