Substitute for Raised H.B. No. 5150
Session Year 2016


AN ACT CONCERNING TREE WARDENS' NOTICES ON TREES AND SHRUBS PRIOR TO REMOVAL AND TREE REMOVAL AND CLEAN-UP BY PUBLIC UTILITY CORPORATIONS.

To require tree warden postings on each tree, shrub or group of shrubs before removal, regardless of consent by an abutting property owner, enable tree wardens to post for a group of shrubs rather than for each individual shrub, require the Department of Transportation to report on tree removals along state highways and require public utilities to remove debris caused by tree and shrub removals they undertake.
