Large trees in front of the Clark House

Since the large trees in front of the Clark House were recently taken down the Town has received many calls and emails asking why “those beautiful old trees” had to be removed. The decision to remove the trees was not made lightly; the trees were so severely diseased that they were hollow on the inside and cabled together to keep them from splitting apart. Tree experts from both Birchcrest and Terry Tree (who removed the trees) were surprised they had not fallen down in recent windstorms. If they had fallen on nearby power lines the surrounding electrical grid may have been out for several days depending on the number of poles that would have been damaged. 

As the Town continues to clean up around the Clark House appropriately scaled landscaping will be added to the site.
