AuSable Acres Tree Removal Planned

JAY — After numerous inquiries, town officials say New York State Electric and Gas has arranged to have downed tree limbs and brush removed from AuSable Acres properties.

Jay Town Supervisor Randall Douglas said NYSEG has hired subcontractors to remove the brush and trees that have been cut within the company’s pre-approved right-aways and easements.

Trees in those areas were cut by NYSEG crews to prevent downed lines or possible power interruptions.

Douglas said affected trees and brush will soon be put through a chipper and be disposed of.

He said anyone with additional concerns should contact NYSEG representatives in Plattsburgh.
