Real Estate: Illegal Tree Removals and Home Sales

Woodlands2Residents were dismayed to find that crews were clear cutting trees at 19 Woodland Place on Saturday May 11. Neighbors called the Scarsdale Police Department who determined that the workmen did not have a permit and ordered the crew to stop the tree removal.

However, disobeying SPD orders and without seeking a permit, the logging crew continued operations on Monday May 13. On Tuesday May 14, eight large trees were removed. No permit was issued and tree removal was completed on Tuesday May 14.

Village Code Enforcement Officer Douglas Schur inspected the property on May 14 after all the trees had been removed. He charged the developer with a code violation-- tree removal without a permit--and issued a summons for appearance in Village Court. Earlier this year, a neighbor caught the owner digging up a leaking fuel oil tank near the property line without seeking a permit or obtaining required environmental review, testing, and remediation.
