*FOR LONG ISLAND N.Y.
Every big tree in Long Island on homeowners land land must be chopped down to make sure that no tree ever knocks down a power Line again. Theses large trees 50 years old are all diseased ,have some sort of rot and a short root system , making it ripe to fall in a major storm like they did in Sandy.
The sidewalk committees should make LIPA or the town pay for new sidewalks when these trees felled. This should be a major undertaking in Nassau County end/
