We encourage all residents who have lost a tree and want another one to apply for the Town's Tree Planting Program by filling out a Tree Replacement Application. You can obtain an application by contacting the Department of Environmental Control at (631) 422-7640 ext. 7645.
Contact the Office of Citizen Services at 631-957-7474 or 3-1-1. You can also fill out this online form. A service request will be sent to DPW to schedule an inspection of the tree. Inspections include gathering information on location, degree of nuisance, existing workload, health of the tree, other existing problems and if the sidewalk has been lifted by more than two inches. If warranted, repairs will be scheduled and expedited as soon as possible.
Contact PSEG at 1-800-490-0075 . During a storm/emergency response situation, PSEG will remove/trim the necessary portions of trees in order to conduct the associated work. These trees will be cut/trimmed and, depending on the location of the tree (rear yard or front yard), neatly stacked in a logistically appropriate area of the customer’s premises. It is the responsibility of either the homeowner or the municipality (Town or Village) in which they live to remove the tree debris.
