Street Trees for Winchester replenishing town's street tree population with the help of town funding; Winchester, MA

Street Trees for Winchester: A new green program begins to take root throughout town - Winchester, MA - The Winchester Star

Winchester, MA - One of the reasons many of us choose to live in Winchester is that it is such a green town. But we all know streets that are less green, on which buildings and signs, utility poles, mailboxes and fire hydrants stand out all too clearly, without the benefit of a visually softening canopy of green.
Well, a $20,000 appropriation by the 2008 Winchester Town Meeting and the volunteer Street Trees for Winchester (STW) is hoping to change all that. The long process that will result in new trees was begun in 2008 as an outgrowth of the Master Plan, with a joint funding request made to the Capital Planning Committee from the Planning Board, The Conservation Commission and the Design Review Committee.
