All agreed that there is a need for an evaluation by a CTE for pruning or removal and replacement for these properties.
Regarding the removal request for 800 Walnut, the commission agreed that the tree in question would need to be evaluated after it leafs out as it looked healthy. The commission granted the removal request for 117 Trenton. Peter Renner will respond to Elaine Petrillo on the commission’s decision on both requests.

Pete Ritchings will be bringing street tree pruning ordinance information from Tinton Falls for the next meeting.
