Liberty Grove Town Board Approves Tree Cutting Plan

A project to cut back trees on Garret Bay Road in the Town of Liberty Grove will move forward as a result of action taken by the town board Wednesday evening. The board accepted the low bid of $5,400 from Townline Timber services to do the work which is expected to take three days & be completed during the month. WDOR News was told that department of transportation recommendations called for trees to be cut back for 20 feet on either side of the road & the town’s consultant recommended ten feet on each side. The board settled on a plan to cut back the trees by six feet on either side of the roadway. Some of the reasons for cutting back the trees included the danger of having trees close to the road, especially during the winter, & the possibility that tree roots could eventually damage the road bed.
