Private property is not the only place where trees are being cut in Westport.
Earlier today, Eversource and Metro-North took down trees in the right-of-way at the railroad station.
Matthew Mandell — an RTM member for the district, and director of the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce — called it “a great loss to the community. A number of these trees are beautiful in summer. They also obscure part of the tall electric gantry.”
