New Fairfield asking for reports about leaning, damaged trees in town right-of-ways

Following a fatal falling tree accident in Danbury, New Fairfield officials are looking at damaged or leaning trees in an effort to prevent a similar accident. 
 
A 45-year old Danbury man was a passenger in a pick up truck that was struck by a tree on Padanaram Road/Route 37 on Tuesday.  It's unknown if the tree was weakened by the May 15th severe storms, or if it was simply old and the ground was over-saturated from all of the recent rain. 
 
New Fairfield officials are asking that any resident who lives on a town road to report damaged or leaning trees withing the Town right-of-way, typically 10 feet from the edge of the road.  Any New Fairfield resident living on a state road should also report the information, which will be forwarded to the state Department of Transportation.  Reports can be made via email: nfstormdamage@newfairfield.org
