Town of Chevy Chase Wants To Know About Tree Cutting Practices

The Town of Chevy Chase is looking for resident input on tree companies and tree maintenance, particularly in the aftermath of last summer’s derecho.

The Town’s Climate and Environmental Committee is developing initiatives to “improve the health and safety of our tree canopy,” according to a Town email alert today.

The Town Office is asking residents who used arborists and tree companies to describe their experience, what company they used, what work they did, costs, how many trips it took to complete the work and other questions relating to clean-up.

The Town also wants to hear about clearing trees and debris. It took officials in Montgomery County almost a month to clear debris from all roadways because of the power of the storm and widespread power outages in the days after.

Residents can respond to the Town Office at townoffice@townofchevychase.org.
