The city's web site says that a Tree Board exists.
At least two of these board members (England, Savino) no longer live in New Albany, and John Gonder lost his seat on the council. Perhaps the web site has not been updated.
On numerous occasions when trees have been removed, the following being examples that spring immediately to mind ...
Street tree removals
Main Street Improvement Project
Thomas Street sidewalks
Beach Mold & Tool expansion
Summit Springs project off State Street
... we've asked how the Tree Board was involved, and whether the Tree Board was involved, and the answer we've received more often or not (when an answer is forthcoming, which is seldom) is that um, maybe, although we'll have to check.
If you can locate the Tree Board, please let us know. We have a tremendous concrete- and asphalt-induced Urban Heat Island problem in metro Louisville, of which New Albany is part.
How many trees has Team Gahan pulled down since 2012?
