In a recent message to homeowners, Berkeley Lake Mayor Lois Salter noted trees as a passionate topic and encouraged residents to become familiar with the city’s tree removal policies. As a city committed to tree preservation, Berkeley Lake has some of the most stringent tree removal guidelines within the county.
“The difficulty for our city council is always to find some rule that is a middle way, meeting the needs of people who pay for property to shape their cherished living spaces as they desire, while also honoring in a fair and reasonable way some communal vision for our city,” stated Salter.
Salter went on to encourage homeowners to ask questions, speak to council members and attend future council meetings to learn more and make suggestions.
