Tree Warden Rules Against Eversource on Removal of Trees on Indian Field Road

A Public Hearing was held on Thursday, June 13 ,20 19 at 12:00 PM for three Norway Maples trees, specifically one approximately 10″ DBH (Diameter at Breast Height), one 14″ DBH, and one 17″ DBH posted for removal at 0 Indian Field Road.

As required by Chapter 451 , Section 23-59 of the Connecticut General Statutes, a public hearing was called because appeals objecting to the removal of these trees were received within 10 days of their posting. The tree removals were requested by Eversource.

Letters of objection were read into the record. Comments were made by participants objecting to the removals.

Eversource presented a new plan regarding the access way located at 0 Indian Field Road.

In light of the new plans, it is my decision not to remove these three Norway Maples trees, at this time.

This is the final decision of the Tree Warden of the Town of Greenwich. Let it be known that Chapter 451, Section 23-59 of the Connecticut General Statutes states “the Tree Warden shall render his decision granting or denying the application, and the party aggrieved by such decision may, within ten days, appeal therefrom to the superior court or the judicial district within which such town or borough is located.”

This decision will be posted in the lobby of the offices of the Parks and Recreation Department located on the 2nd floor of the Town Hall, the lobby of Town Hall, the Town Clerk’s office, and the Town of Greenwich website Parks & Recreation-
Public Tree Hearing.

It will also be sent to persons present at the Public Hearing and to those who appealed the posting of these trees for removal.
