Tree Advisory Committee needs new members

BRATTLEBORO — Do you like trees? They reduce energy use, provide erosion control, and help control storm water runoff.

The Brattleboro Tree Advisory Board is shorthanded and needs two new members. If you are a resident and want to help us look after the town's trees, fill out the online application at the town's website, www.brattleboro.org > Serving the Community > Boards and Committees > Application. (Don't be intimidated by the application; it's an all-purpose document. If you have questions about it, Jan Anderson at 251-8100 can help.)

There's no need to be a tree expert - the Brattleboro Tree Warden is an ex officio member of the committee.

We meet at 7 p.m. on the second Tuesday of each month in the Hanna Cosman room at the Municipal Center. Meetings are open to the public; come meet us on Sept. 12.
