Tree Committee

The Tree Committee views our trees as an important resource to be protected, preserved, maintained and replaced. The purpose of this Committee shall be to recommend policy and plans to the Town with regards to the planting, care and removal of municipal trees while encouraging sound environmental and cultural practices.

The goals of the Tree Committee include:
 • Maintain an inventory of Town trees along streets, walkways and public parks (a special tag will be used to identify trees that are monitored for health and safety)
• Publicize and educate in school and the community on tree quality, diversity and care • Recommend replacement trees, respecting species variety, location and compatibility • Interact with Tree Warden concerning public and private issues
The Tree Committee meets on the 1st Thursday of each month at 5:00 p.m. on the 3rd floor of Town Hall on an as needed basis. All meetings are posted in Town Hall and on the Meeting Calendar.
