Woods Committee Co-chair Joan Mahaffey presented the results of the questionnaire on the Committee’s Forest Health Restoration Plan. The results tallied those questionnaires received at the conclusion of November’s informational meeting and those sent as part of the December 2018 Town Bulletin. Of the 44 responses received, a clear majority supports the three-pronged approach of non-native invasive plant control, deer control and reforestation. Woods Co-chair Patty Klein added that deer control is a priority and the Committee is working on a timeline to enable deer culling this fall. Town ordinances must be amended to permit hunting under certain circumstances. Montgomery County has very strict requirements for archers and their services are available free of charge. Audrey Maskery asked if the Town could find out about culling efforts by nearby jurisdictions.
