An inventory of all the street trees in the village of Saugerties was initiated last year by the Saugerties Village Tree Commission, paid for by a grant written by commission chair Rosemarie Brackett. The survey, now complete, maps out each tree in the village with its location, species and condition. Many of the trees are in need of removal, damaged over the years by the weather or simply from aging. “Sometimes the tree wasn’t planted in an opportune location to begin with,” said Brackett. “But the philosophy of the Tree Commission is, ‘For every tree that comes down, at least one tree gets planted.’”
