Focus
The committee's primary focus is to identify locations for tree planting, plan and implement street tree and park projects throughout the town, and assist local citizens by providing information concerning care and planting of trees in the neighborhoods.

The Committee is working to increase the Town's Urban Tree Canopy and encourages residents and business owners to plant trees on private property.  Follow the link below for information on tree planting, access to the state's nursery and coupons for tree purchases.
