The Conservation Commission may only grant permission for the tree removal. The Commission will not perform the work or order any other agency to perform the work. Any approval granted through the Conservation Commission does not grant property rights or any exclusive privileges; it does not authorize any injury to private property or invasion of private rights. The Applicant, if not the owner of the property on which the tree is located, shall provide the Commission with a written authorization from the owner, indicating their approval for the request.
Any approval granted by the Conservation Commission does not relieve the applicant from the necessity of complying with all other applicable federal, state, or local statutes, ordinances, or regulations.
If the tree is a public shade tree the office of the tree warden should also be contacted.
