Felder: Don’t Let Trees Stump Us


felder trees“While trees can often help beautify our neighborhood, stumps that are left behind after a tree has been removed present an unsightly and often dangerous obstruction to homeowners and pedestrians,” says NY Senator Simcha Felder. “As part of the Senator On Site program, I make every effort to visit homes and help the owners resolve any issues they may have.”

Senator Felder was joined by homeowners Martin and Sonia Rosenbaum who, together with the Brooklyn Parks Commissioner and representatives from Brooklyn Forestry, helped to remove the unsightly tree stump in front of the Rosenbaum’s property. The Senator was also joined by the crew of Dom’s Tree Service, who operated the machinery used during the removal.

“This tree stump has caused so many problems,” said Mr. Rosenbaum. “I am so happy that Senator Felder was able to coordinate the removal, and help make our block look cleaner and be safer.”

“I am thankful to Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Jeffrey, as well as Brian LaBelle and Director Andrew Ullman from Brooklyn Forestry, for working with us to help beautify homes and make our sidewalks safer,” said Senator Felder, who was visiting homes on Tuesday to facilitate tree stump removals. “With each tree stump removed, we take one more step towards creating a cleaner and safer neighborhood for all residents.”

  1. It’s former Mayor Bloomberg’s fault. During his term he spent millions on tree planting.
    He also funded the cutting down of dead trees, but to save money he never funded stump removal!
