The tree board will study, investigate, counsel and develop a written plan for the care of trees and shrubs in town parks and other public areas. They will present their findings annually to the Board of Trustees. Upon their acceptance and approval this shall constitute the official comprehensive town tree plan.  


Tree Board meetings are on the 1st Monday of each month at 4:00 pm. Contact Ms. Self or the Town Hall for meeting location.
