Selectmen Get Update on Trees; Removals ‘Not Willy-Nilly’

Trees were again the subject of a lively discussion at the Board of Selectmen today with word that new trees are scheduled to be planted on Main Street by the end of May/early June and new cherry trees will be planted in front of Town Hall. Image

The board accepted a donation of seven trees worth $3,000 – six from Oliver Nurseries in Fairfield and one from Millane Nurseries, Inc. of Cromwell.

Pubic Works Director Steve Edwards said the donations, obtained by Tree Warden Bruce Lindsay, will allow planting of a number of 18- to 20-foot tall trees on the south end of Main Street before mid-June. He said they would have a 4-inch caliper, meaning their trunks will be 4 inches across.

This will ensure that they will be consistent with the streetscape and not block awnings or windows, he said.
