Tree Debris Removal Services - Community Announcement

Apr 30, 2013

The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe's Forestry Resources program will be starting its dead and down tree woody debris removal project very soon with plans to start work the first week of June 2013. The Environment Division will be accepting work orders in the form of Permission/Waiver forms at their office on 449 Frogtown Road, Akwesasne. The program will operate for six weeks only as resources are very limited. No services will be provided without a signed form from the landowner.

The services are to remove downed limbs and branches from winter storms. Elders and disabled will be given priority. Downed branches and limbs will be removed by the Tribe's contractor. The contractor will only perform work as authorized under their contract. Landowners will be financially responsible for any additional work requested of the contractor. Work sites will only be serviced once this year. A waiver and permission form must be completed and signed BEFORE work is done. Trees will not be cut down as part of this service. Ornamental pruning and trimming will not be performed through these services.

Please contact Les Benedict at the Environment Division at (518) 358-5937, X-118 or stop by the Environment Division office located at 449 Frogtown Road to sign up for services. Sign up is limited so please complete and submit waivers by the deadline. The deadline for sign up is May 31, 2013.
