Brattleboro Tree Board Needs a New Member

Do you like trees? They reduce energy use, provide erosion control, and help control storm water runoff. The Brattleboro Tree Advisory Board is short-handed and needs a new member. If you are a resident of Brattleboro, and want to help us look after the Town’s trees, fill out the online application at the Town’s website: > Serving the Community > Boards and Committees > Application. (Don’t be intimidated by the application; it’s an all-purpose document. If you have questions about it, Jan Anderson at 251-8100 can help.)

There’s no need to be a tree expert—the Brattleboro Tree Warden is an ex officio member of the committee. We meet at 6:30 PM on the first Thursday of the month in the Meeting Room at the Brattleboro Food Co-op. Meetings are open to the public; come meet us on March 5.

  • I agree

    This would be a good time to join… the selectboard recently mentioned the possibility of paying to add some trees around town.

    It isn’t a definite plan, but the Tree Board could come in and ask for $16,000 and might get some of it.
