Project Team of the Citizens' Implementation Committee
The Tree Team meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 pm. The group is currently meeting via Zoom videoconferencing. Meeting schedules are subject to change as necessary. Call Town Hall with questions or send an email to Sarah Reynolds.
The Tree Team serves to watch over the Town's community forest: those trees and woodlands growing on Town-owned land such as Town parks, cemeteries, and the Town Hall campus. The Town is very fortunate to have trained arborists, naturalists, and educators on the Tree Team and is extremely grateful for their time. Tree Team members have advised the Town on general tree health including disease, insect infestations and the presence of invasive species. They also provide advice on hazardous trees.
The team was created in early 2020 as a Project Team falling under the Citizens' Implementation Committee, which serves to implement the goals in the Town's Comprehensive Plan. The team helps to achieve the Town's goal to protect its natural resources.
