Trees make our Town a special place to live. They shade our homes, our businesses and our streets. They clean our air and water, reduce storm water run-off, increase our property values, reduce energy costs and make our neighborhoods greener, safer, and healthier.

Tree City USA recognition from the Arbor Day Foundation would highlight our commitment to urban forestry, community improvement and civic pride.

Our trees are a vital asset. In fact, our green infrastructure is likely the only part of our Town’s infrastructure that actually increases in value and service over time. The Tree City USA program provides an outstanding framework for managing this important asset. It is the Town’s intention to meet the requirements to become recognized as a Tree City, USA in 2017.
