Fairfield Removes Sherman Green Maple

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Wednesday might be your last chance to say goodbye to one of Fairfield’s oldest residents. Crews are currently working to cut down one of the sugar maple trees on Sherman Green on the Post Road. Tree Warden Ken Placko slated the tree for culling last June when he discovered severe root and trunk damage and “signs of decline.”

Placko extended the offer in June to allow residents to petition to keep the tree. But no one contacted his office to argue against cutting the maple down. Because of the size of the tree and its proximity to the Sherman Gazebo, Placko decided the tree needed to go.

Crews got to work cutting the tree Monday. Because of the sheer size of the tree, the green will be closed at least another day while workers remove it.

Placko also marked two other trees in the area for culling: both stand on the Old Post Road, one house south of the Fairfield Public Library. Requests to save those trees can go to kplacko@town.fairfield.ct.us or Ken Placko, One Rod Highway, Fairfield, CT 06824. Letters should include a phone number to contact.
