Village of Upper Nyack
Linden Trees on North Broadway
On July 18, 2018 the Summit School appeared before the Upper Nyack Planning Board to review a request for tree removal beyond the allowable number of trees that can be removed. The Building Inspector had already issued a permit for 10 high risk trees to be removed. The Planning Board requested the applicant, The Summit School, arrange for a Level II assessment by a Certified Arborist of all of the trees before they proceeded to remove any trees or get permission for additional trees.
As a result of the Level II Risk Assessment by a Certified Arborist, the Building Inspector, with the support of the Village Board of Trustees and the Planning Board, has issued a tree permit for the removal of the 22 linden trees on North Broadway, on the Summit School property. The applicant will return to the Planning Board for review of a landscape plan for replanting of trees in the same location. The risk assessment report is available at the Village hall office.

The Thruway Authority will continue tree removal, clearing, and grubbing activities in South Nyack. Crews will also work near the Interchange 10 off-ramp near Route 9W and Hillside Avenue. Motorists should be advised that the South Broadway bridge has temporarily been reduced to one travel lane so workers can safely construct an underpass for the path.
