Tree Advisory Committee

The Tree Advisory Committee is an advisory organization established by the Trustees in 2013 that works with the Village Tree Warden to promote the improvement and preservation of a healthy environment as it relates to public trees.  The committee provides a mechanism for the planting, maintenance, protection and removal of trees on public streets, parks and Village-owned properties.  

 The Committee meets the third Tuesday of every month at 5:30 PM.

Village Awarded Tree City USA Recognition

The Village of Essex Junction has been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation in honor of our commitment to effective urban forest management.  This is the third consecutive year the Village has received this award.

The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters. Essex Junction achieved Tree City USA recognition by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
