Tree Preservation Board
        The Tree Preservation Board is to consist of five members appointed by the Board of Trustees to serve a three-year term and operate pursuant to Chapter 99 of the Code of the Village/Town of Mount Kisco.  The Board is responsible for the preservation and maintenance of trees, where reasonably possible within the Village, to protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the Village/Town of Mount Kisco, because trees provide necessary shade, green space, aesthetic appeal, impede soil erosion, aid water absorption, provide other environmental benefits, and in general enhance the quality of life.

        The Tree Preservation Board in accordance with Chapter 99 of the Code of the Village/Town of Mount Kisco is tasked with the following:
  • The protection and preservation of as many trees as possible, particularly those trees, which are specimen trees and/or trees of select or rare species.
  • The reforestation and replacement of those trees, which are removed due to disease or development.
  • The preservation of an acceptable level of green foliage in all areas of the Village.
  • Ensuring that suitable wildlife habitats are maintained and reinforced in all areas of the Village.
