In keeping with State and local guidelines the Dumont Shade Tree Commission (DSTC) has adopted the following policy for non-essential work and activity;
Inspections of Boro trees will be curtailed until further notice. Homeowners can request inspections through the website (www.dumontshadetree.org) so that tree issues are recorded. Inspections will resume when deemed safe by the State and local authorities. Note that unsafe tree issues that pose an imminent potential hazard will be dealt with immediately. Notify Boro police 201-387-5000 or 911 if such a situation exists.
Tree permits can be filed through the mail and recorded. Inspections will not be conducted until it is deemed safe to do so by State and local authorities. No trees can be removed until inspections have been completed. Note that unsafe tree issues that pose an imminent potential hazard should be dealt with immediately. Notify Boro police 201-387-5000 or 911 if such a situation exists.
The DSTC supports the health and well-being of the community in all aspects and will adhere to public health guidelines. We wish you to be safe and healthy, including mental health. Get outside and walk among the trees. The Arboretum remains an oasis in town. Remember to keep a safe distance while enjoying the trees.
