New Jersey borough removes 30 dangerous trees

While many premises liability lawsuits may revolve around things that happen within a building, it is important for people in New Jersey to understand exactly how the laws can pertain to anything that happens on the property in general. For example, they should know that falling tree limbs, which may not have been groomed properly, could bring them to premises liability lawsuits even if a person never sets foot in the structure that they own. They need to take care of the property as a whole.

Hurricane Sandy raised awareness on the east coast for things like this, and the city council in Glen Rock Borough has been looking at steps that can be taken to keep people safe in the area. One move that they have recently made is to get in touch with a local contractor to have entire trees removed from the borough's land. The trees, which have been deemed unsafe, are on a number of properties out on Glen and Hazelhurst avenues.

The contractor who was picked to do the job is Ken's Tree Care, Inc. This is a company that operates out of Northvale. Reports indicate that the winning low bid was for $26,475.

After the hurricane, the city brought in a special consultant to examine the area for potential dangers. It was that consultant who pointed out that around 30 trees should be removed.

This move by the city shows that towns themselves may want to look into safety measures on land that they own, as they could face similar lawsuits to other property owners if someone is injured while on city land.
