Those who disobey their town's laws may have to pay $2,000 in fines or spend 30 days in jail as a consequence.
Dover, NJ (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
New Jersey officials are now cracking down on laws governing tree removal in the Garden State, proposing fines and jail time if residents ignore the laws. Rather than unnecessarily removing trees, Amazing Tree Services is offering tree trimming to make trees last longer by keeping them healthier and safer.
According to The Record, many towns throughout Northern NJ are imposing laws that restrict the number of trees that can be cut down on a property. Some laws even prohibit the cutting of any trees without a permit. Those who disobey their town's laws may have to pay $2,000 in fines or spend 30 days in jail as a consequence.
Towns such as Englewood Cliffs are encouraging residents who see a tree being cut down to call the police; however, there are some towns that have not imposed restrictions, such as Teaneck and Demarest.
The laws governing tree removal in NJ come from officials taking note of the importance of trees in regard to air quality and soil erosion, rather than just aesthetic appeal. Because of this, saving the trees has become a top priority this summer.
NJ officials are not the first who are expressing concerns about preserving trees. In Cerritos, CA, residents made a city-wide attempt to preserve their trees, rather than tear them down.
According to an article from the Cerritos-Artesia patch, Councilman Mark Pulido proposed a motion to trim and replace trees throughout the town. The motion was passed, and 4,529 trees were trimmed while 45 parkway median trees were replaced.
The trees were a concern for residents of Cerritos because they had not been taken care of in years. The city's solution was to trim the branches of the trees to ensure the safety of residents, as well as make the tree healthy again.
Tree trimming services lower the number of trees that need to be cut down by removing dead, decaying, dying or broken branches and ensuring overall healthiness for trees. For NJ residents that are concerned about the laws their towns have adopted in regard to cutting down trees, Amazing Tree Services offers fully-insured tree trimming in NJ.
