- HAZARDOUS TREE REMOVAL/PRUNING PROGAM - The Village recognizes that much of Franklin's character is defined by our tree canopy and that must be balanced by the need to provide a safe environment for persons and property within the Village. In the coming months, Franklin Village will undertake a hazardous tree removal and pruning program on public property to increase public safety. Select trees on Village property will need to be removed due to their poor condition and threat to public safety. As part of the Village-wide program, low hanging hazardous and dead branches will be selectively cut back or removed and visibility will be improved at intersections by cutting back undesirable growth.

A Tree Inventory Report and Management Plan was prepared for the Village in 2005 and is a good source of information on tree management specific to the Village.
