Efforts under way to save local tree canopy Weston Town Crier - Framingham,MA,USA
The Weston Tree Advisory Group has been learning from such observations, and we’ve gleaned canopy wisdom from our colleagues in Wellesley. In that town, new public trees are now planted on private property, set back from the road. Homeowners who wish to receive a tree must sign a form agreeing to keep an eye out for the health of the new tree and pledging not to cut it down. The program has been wildly successful, to the point that the former method of planting on the narrow "tree lawn" between sidewalk and street has virtually disappeared in Wellesley.
