The Tree Warden, appointed by the First Selectman for a four-year term, is responsible for care and control of all trees and shrubs on town roads or grounds. Exceptions include those town roads which are part of federal or state highways; and town parks, unless service is requested by the local Parks Commission.

Concern about the health or safety of a town tree should be called in to the Tree Warden at the Public Works Department: 203-341-1120.
