DeKalb abandons tree ordinance efforts
DeKALB – DeKalb won’t implement new rules on cutting or removing trees anytime soon.
For the past few months, DeKalb leaders have struggled with their options for protecting trees in the wake of ComEd clear-cutting trees along the Nature Trail – a 1.5-mile prairie path located between Sycamore Road and First Street.
City officials do not have the authority to regulate ComEd in its easement, and DeKalb aldermen were reluctant to regulate trees on private property unless there was a compelling safety reason.
