Tree Committee Applies for DCR Urban Forestry Grant

On October 23, 2019, the Tree Committee submitted an application for matching grant reimbursement funding from the Massachusetts DCR Urban Forestry Program.  The funding would enable the Tree Committee (1) to purchase equipment needed to begin to assemble a data base roster listing "Significant or Remarkable Trees in West Newbury", and (2) to receive training for Tree Committee members on tree stewardship.  The grant amount being sought is $3,098, and the DCR announcement of grant award will likely occur sometime in the first quarter of 2020. 

Upcoming Community Events 

The Tree Committee is in the brainstorming and planning phase for potential community events for winter 2019-2020 and for the remainder of 2020. Please visit this page often to find out about upcoming activities and events. Possibilities being considered are a "Tree Day" in late April 2020, which could include free distribution of tree seedlings to residents as well other informational programs.  If you have an idea you would like the Tree Committee to consider, please submit your idea via our email address:
