    UI is removing healthy trees from our neighborhood park- please advise them immediately not to remove any more trees from this location. The trees provide necessary shade and ambiance. Removing more trees will destroy this beautiful neighborhood gem.

  • 48 Church Street Hamden, CT - Hamden

    I am writing regarding an old tree in front of my house at 48 church st. Hamden. This is a very old tree, with lots of rotten large branches that tend to fall during every storm and with strong winds. The tree is located on the sidewalk, a block away from an elementary school. Parents and children walk by every morning.

    I have a three year old girl that plays in the yard and I am worried for her safety. The tree is also putting my property and my neighbors at risk, both our cars and part of our houses sit underneath the tree.

    My husband and neighbor have tried contacting Public Works MANY times during the last two years with no response whatsoever. We tried to hire someone to take the tree down but they wouldn’t do it because is city’s property. So we are requesting the tree to be taken down for everyone safety. If it can’t be taken down, it at least needs a serious pruning.

    I appreciate your help on directing this request to the responsible person so they take action.

    The street-side maple tree in front of our home at 60 Woodlawn Street really needs to come down. It has been twice condemned over the past 6 or 7 years, yet still stands. Several large limbs have crashed down in the intervening time, one smashing the back off our neighbor's mini van.
    It is only a matter of time before the remaining limbs break off, potentially harming a resident or worse.

    It would be great if this particular tree can be put to rest.

    Thanks in advance for your attention to this request.

  • 105 Mill Rock Rd. Hamden, Connecticut - Hamden
    A tree in a neighbor's backyard split about 15 feet up the trunk during the windstorm on Sat. and it now leaning toward the road and wires. It's very large and will take out the power lines on Mill Rock, a fence and block the road when it comes down. The neighbors are rarely home, so wondering what the next step might be to prevent property and bodily injury when there is another wind and the tree falls on the power lines and road. It's probably 60 or more feet tall.
  • 190 Edgehill Road Hamden, CT - Hamden
