Reviewed a letter from John Spiech requesting a recommendation of types of trees, native to Mahwah, which could be planted in the mountain areas. These trees should not appeal to gypsy moths. C. Phiefer will research this information and reply to John Spiech.
Received a copy of a letter written to the Planning Board from Mr. and Mrs. Morgan, property owners adjacent to the proposed First Union Bank to be built on Franklin Turnpike. They are concerned about maintaining the existing tree buffer and what was actually incorporated into the final set of plans.
