Tree Work Planned Along These Roadways

Posted on February 20, 2019

UPDATE 2/20/19 – PSE&G has informed the Township that they will be conducting tree removal along Route 518, between Route 601 and Route 206.  The removals are limited to ash trees that are dead or dying and will become a future hazard.  They have contracted with Davey Tree Service for this work who plan to start no sooner than 2 weeks from now, but it will likely be more than 2 weeks.  The work itself will only take a few days, and impacted residents along Rt. 518 will be notified with hang-tags on their doors.

Unrelatedly, Asplundh Tree Service informed the Township on February 6th that there will be routine tree trimming along  specific Township roadways (see below).  Residents along the impacted roadways are being notified by Asplundh this week and trimming in the southern portion of the township will be the first to begin, immediately. Residents where trimming will occur are asked to sign cards by Asplundh, confirming that they were notified, or the crews leave a card at the house.  They estimate the entire project will take 4-6 weeks.
