Clem volunteered to check with the Native Plant Society to determine if they had materials, displays, etc. that would be appropriate for a booth at this year’s Seafood Festival in September.
Anne briefly updated the commission on the Arnold Avenue tree removal, pruning and planting project.
Peter Ritchings discussed the Paramus ordinance regarding pruning trees. He will continue to follow-up on this issue to see if there is a pruning ordinance that makes sense for Point Pleasant Beach.
