In November of 2007, Nyack hired Dean Dykeman to conduct a tree inspection for village’s 300+ trees. (see PDF Report)
The contract was for only $3,000 so it was a “drive-by” visual inspection with no measuring, borings, etc.
The report suggested removing about 20 trees and dozens in dire need of pruning.
The report suggest the Village needs a tree management plan including:
- Annual Inspection of all village trees
- Development of a tree removal and replanting program
- An annual budget for tree care
- Designation of a certified arborist to help manage the village trees
