The Tree Advisory Board was established for the purpose of advising the Enforcement Officer, Building Inspector, Planning Board, Wetlands Control Commission, Town Board, Highway Department, Recreation Department and other agencies and offices of the Town on matters relating to the preservation, planting and removal of trees.

For the entire text of the Tree Preservation Ordinance, please go to General Code, Chapter 112.

Tree and Planting Program Launching the most ambitious tree maintenance and planting program in Bedford history, the Davey Resource Group, a national natural resource consultancy group, presented to the Town Board at its June 4 meeting the report of its tree inventory of Bedford’s public lands.   The report and recommendation are the culmination of nearly a year-long process funded by a $50,000 grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation which the late Fred Pollack of the Conservation Board secured at the behest of the Town Board.  The Town Board has committed in its Capital Plan for each of 2019, 2020 and 2021 $50,000 for removal and trimming of hazardous trees as well as $15,000 for tree plantings.   The Town will be working closely with the Conservation Board and the Tree Advisory Committee in implementing the plans. 6.4.2019 Davey Resource Group Report
