Point Pleasant Beach Shade Tree Commission

Present: Clem Bremer, Elaine Hennessy, Anne LIghtburn, Peter Renner and Peter Ritchings
Absent: Council Liaison Tom Vogel
Anne Lightburn called the meeting to order at 7:05 pm.
Peter Renner will announce a Spring Planting for the Big Beautiful Tree Program. Peter is still following up on a state grant, which the commission may have already qualified for.
Anne and Peter Renner updated the commission on the activities relative to the revitalizing the Arnold Avenue treescape. To date, three trees have been planted on Arnold Ave., with three committed for spring planting. Nine trees will be scheduled for removal and the remaining 24 Bradford Pears for spring pruning. Additionally, Anne and Peter identified another 16 locations where new trees can be planted this pring. Anne and Peter are working with Chris Riehl on this project to get bids for pruning, removal and planting.
Anne will call the Chamber of Commerce to request attending a chamber meeting to update them on the Arnold Ave. project.
The commission approved the 2015 Annual STC report. Anne will send to the council for their approval for submission to the state.
Peter Renner will be contacting Kris Tooker to see how the students can participate in an Arbor Day program to replace two dead trees on Chicago Ave. along the Antrim School property.
Elaine Hennessy is still trying to contact the county on replacing trees on county roads.
As the commission is interested in conducting a tree survey, Clem volunteered to find out when or where there will be another I-tree training program. The commission’s thoughts were to possible have technically savvy students along with Pete Ritchings get training.
Anne and Peter Renner will try to meet with Brave New World to discuss their replanting. They have taken down six trees under permit. Elaine Hennessy reported that they also took down a tree, not under permit, on Washington Ave. and heavily pruned a tree on 35 South. The commission will follow-up on the illegal removal of the Washington Ave. tree.
Pete Ritchings has been investigating other town’s ordinances for getting advance notice of pruning by utility companies. Clem mentioned the Tree Line Program. The commission agreed that such an ordinance might be beneficial in PPB. Pete will check with the Spring Lake Shade Tree Commission to see how they handle advance notice or monitoring the utility company work.
Meeting adjourned at 8:20 pm
