Tree Warden

The definition of a Town Tree is any tree having a trunk greater than one and a half inches that is on the public right of way. If any part of the trunk is on town property, the tree belongs to the town. Overhanging branches do not make a tree town property. The town does have a right to trim such branches for public safety purposes. Any tree that has been planted by the town that is not on town property is not a town tree. The tree becomes property of the landowner. State law allows municipalities to plant trees within 20 feet of the public right of way.

If you have questions about a tree, call the Department of Public Works at 413-684-6115.
