Boston Parks and Recreation will be hosting a tree hearing – complete with Tree Warden – yes, there is such a thing – to discuss the removal of a tree on F Street in Southie. Evidently a curb cut request for 109 F would require the removal of the tree. See press release below.
In accordance with Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 87, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will hold a public hearing on Thursday, June 2, at 10 a.m. on a request to remove one public shade tree at 109 F Street in South Boston.
The hearing will be held by the City of Boston’s Tree Warden (or designee) in the 3rd floor Conference Room of the Boston Parks and Recreation Department at 1010 Massachusetts Avenue, Roxbury.
The proposal is for the removal of one linden tree measuring 2.5 inches dbh (diameter at breast height) due to a curb cut application at 109 F Street.
Public testimony will be taken at the hearing, or may be provided prior to the hearing in writing to the Tree Warden, Boston Parks and Recreation Department, 1010 Massachusetts Avenue, 3rd Floor, Boston, MA 02118 or by emailing [email protected] with “South Boston Tree Hearing” in the subject line.
A final decision regarding the request will be made within two weeks of the hearing. For further information, please contact the Tree Warden at (617) 635-7275.
