Tree Law

PURPOSE Large Pine

The Town of Putnam Valley finds and declares that the preservation of trees within the Town is necessary to protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the Town of Putnam Valley. Trees help stabilize the soil and control water pollution by preventing soil erosion and flooding, mitigate air pollution, protect organisms that control the insect population, generate oxygen, yield advantageous micro-climatic effects, sustain the aesthetic quality of the community, offer a natural barrier to noise and wind, provide shade from the sun, and natural habitat for wildlife.

Chapter 161 - Tree Cutting - Adopted by the Town Board of Putnam Valley October 22, 2003
