Developer’s Tree Plan Irks Environmental Commission

Ted Chase

Township Councilman Ted Chase (D-Ward 1), the council liaison to the Environmental Commission, noted that one application under review planned to remove trees on township property.

A plan by an Edison developer to remove 25 trees from a Hillcrest Avenue property drew the ire of the Environmental Commission at its Aug. 18 meeting.

Developer Gregory Ginzberg wants to create three lots and build houses on two of them. His plan calls for the removal of about two dozen trees.

That caught the commissioners’ attention; what irked them a bit was the fact that some of those trees are on township property.

“Why are they taking trees out that are on the township right-of-way, which they have no right to”” asked Township Councilman Ted Chase (D-Ward 1) the council liaison to the commission.

The commissioners agreed with him and voted to ask that the plan be changed to accommodate the trees.
