TP Tree Advisory Board Launches Website
Posted: 4/20/16

The Tuxedo Park Tree Advisory Board has launched their website!  Check it out:

The TPTAB was established by law in January 2016 by the Village of Tuxedo Park Board of Trustees under the Charter of Tree City USA.

Trees are vital to the environmental and economic prosperity of Tuxedo Park.
To protect and enhance this invaluable asset, their mission is to promote the benefits of a healthy forest with a sustainable tree population by advocating responsible policies and by implementing tree conservation, education and planting programs.

The TPTAB assumes a leadership role but our work relies on community collaboration: each resident of Tuxedo Park is a partner in the wise oversight of our forest infrastructure. They understand the need to balance aesthetics with environmental requirements, but also recognize what individual residents do with trees on their private properties impacts the well-being of the entire community. We are all guardians of this critical resource for the benefit of current and future generations.
