The removal of trees in the Town Right of Way (ROW) falls under the jurisdiction of the Highway Department; homeowners may be asked to provide a survey. The Town does not remove healthy trees. To be considered for removal, a tree in the Town ROW must be dead or the roots must be causing damage (such as lifting a driveway or curb or going into a cesspool). Brookhaven Town requires that residents plant trees at least six feet back from the roadway out of the Town ROW, to avoid potential problems in which the roots may damage the concrete curb, sidewalk and / or road asphalt as the tree grows.
