It is the mission of the Town to maintain, grow and support our town trees as well as keep the residents safe from potential damaged and weakened trees. As severe weather with high winds and early and late snow storms become more the norm, it is important to keep up with the maintenance of our town shade trees. To that end, the Town will seek more funding for this important work. The Town appreciates its working relationship with National Grid. National Grid's support and efficient response in handling those trees that threaten our utility lines reduces costs to the taxpayers.
Town tree work is a delicate balance of protecting our town shade trees and taking care of those trees that threaten people, property and roads. The Town continues to seek new members for the Shade Tree Committee and an individual to act as Tree Warden. If you are passionate about our town trees and have an interest in maintaining this balance, please contact the Board of Selectmen’s Office.
