Tree Warden

Josh Bell

A tree warden is the appointed individual in each Vermont community responsible for making determinations about the care and stewardship of shade trees in public ways and places. Municipal shade trees include those trees planted by the municipality in downtowns and village centers or on other municipally-owned land, and trees on public property or in public right-of-ways that have been designated as shade trees. State law in Vermont, as in all New England states, requires the legislative body of each municipality to appoint a tree warden.
