The Town of Tewksbury is taking part in a cooperative tree planting program with National Grid that will take place this Spring, says Tewksbury public works director Brian Gilbert.
The goal is to plant 25 street trees along the town’s right-of-way roadways. Before planting commences, the town is reaching out to residents to identify those who are interested in having a tree planted along the street in front of their homes. The town will determine if the location is suitable for planting and provide a choice of appropriate species that will not interfere with overhead wires.
If you are interested in securing a street tree or would like more information on the program, please contact the Department of Public Works (DPW) at (978) 640-4440.
Due to the necessary lead time, Gilbert asks interested residents to contact the DPW no later than April 22, 2022. Supply is limited; therefore, this is a first come first serve opportunity.
