There are updates to the bylaw, which can be found under the New Laws section of the code.
The Tree Committee was established in October 2001 when the town Tree Bylaw came into effect. Recent activities include facilitating spring and fall setback tree planting, working with town to select appropriate trees for street locations, and more.
The Committee helps sponsor Arbor Day celebrations every year at the end of April. Lexington is a many-year recipient of Tree City USA status from the Arbor Day Foundation.
The Committee has written and published a Tree Management Manual (PDF), which contains useful information for residents, builders, and public employees.
