WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A TREE FALLS in such a way that it straddles Town/Resident property lines? A new Tree Removal policy, adopted by the Hawley Selectboard at its October 2, 2018, meeting, spells out the options.
This policy, which is aimed at clarifying rather than changing existing practices, addresses the following:
► Who gets to use the tree?
► Requesting Town’s help for tree disposal;
► Highway Department/Tree Warden considerations; and,
► Policy limitations.
