Defending Your Town’s Healthy Trees

TreesOn Tuesday, June 23, the Farmington Libraries will host an information session on issues related to proposed tree trimming near utility lines around the state. This event will take place at 4:30 p.m. at the Farmington Main Library at 6 Monteith Drive.

Trees are a crucial piece of Connecticut’s charm, and are one of the principal reasons our citizens enjoy a high quality of life, plus they provide many additional benefits to our communities and environment. Unfortunately, we are losing thousands of healthy street trees around Connecticut to overly-aggressive utility trimming programs and could lose up to a million more over the next few years. Audience members will learn what they can do to protect healthy, structurally sound trees in your neighborhood.

This event is coordinated by the Connecticut Fund for the Environment, the Connecticut Tree Wardens Association, and the Farmington River Watershed Association.

This event is free and open to the public. Please register in advance for this program by calling the library at 860-673-6791, using the online registration form, or visiting the Information Services Desk.

The Farmington Library is part of the Farmington Village Green and Library Association. If you have special needs to attend library programs, contact the library in advance.
