To protect and care for the Trees of Irondequoit, the Town adopted new regulations requiring all commercial tree services operating within the Town limits to be licensed. This includes any vendor that performs tree trimming, tree cutting, limb removal, pruning, thinning, cabling, topping, root pruning, and stump grinding on both the Right of Way and Private property within the Town.
This new regulation is to protect residents by ensuring the vendor is properly insured for the tree work performed, ensure proper handling of the woody material, as well as to protect the overall Town tree canopy.
Any tree service business that performs work in the Town is responsible for properly disposing of all the material. The Town will not pick up material generated by contractors that is left on the project site.
Homeowners soliciting contractors to perform tree work can find attached the list of licensed tree vendors in Town.
