In­surance will cover cost of tree work at ceme­tery

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - LOCAL NEWS - By Wil­liam J. Kem­ble news@free­manon­line.com

The Town Board has ap­proved a $2,300 con­tract with Dave’s Tree Ser­vice to re­move the re­mains of two trees in the Rhinebeck Mu­nic­i­pal Ceme­tery that fell dur­ing re­cent storms.

The cost of the work will be cov­ered by in­surance, town of­fi­cials said.

Even with the main sec­tions of the trees gone, a con­sid­er­able amount re­mains, town Su­per­vi­sor El­iz­a­beth Spinzia said.

“They’re stumps and trunks [up to] 30 feet high,” Spinzia said at Mon­day’s board meet­ing.

“We took off what we could,” she said. “Now the trunks have to be ground out so we can re­plant.”

The agree­ment with Dave’s calls for what’s left of the trees to be ground into mulch.
