Environmental Shade Tree Commission

About the ESTC

The ESTC assists residents with planting, trimming and removal of public trees.

The ESTC also sponsors Green Community Projects from March through October on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 9am-11am. Some of these projects include garden planting, weeding, cleanups, small tree trimming and pruning. All volunteers are asked to meet at the Rain Garden on the Main Street / Springwood Avenue intersection. Youth looking to accrue Community Service Hours are welcome, and letters of support will be provided for their school records.


Meeting Times & Location

The Environmental Shade Tree Commission generally meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the City Council Chambers.
