Calling all Greenwich residents. The Greenwich Tree Conservancy wants to
know if you have a treasured tree on your property.
The Greenwich Tree Conservancy is launching the “Treasured Tree Program” to raise awareness of special trees on private lands in our community, to create respect for unique trees, to encourage forethought for any removal of name plated trees, and finally to inspire future nominations.
The characteristics of such a tree would be one or more of the following: it is loved for many reasons; its magnificent size; its age; its pedigree species; its unique shape; its Spring flowers or Fall foliage; its special history; or a special memory or story.
Nomination forms will be available at the GTC website:
wwwgreenwichtreeconservancy, as well as a list of frequently asked questions.
Nominations will be judged by three tree expert judges who will come to your
home to evaluate the nominated tree.
If selected by our judges, your tree will have a 5” x 7” nameplate mounted around the base of the tree. The nameplate and the installation will be paid for by the Greenwich Tree Conservancy. You will also be awarded a framed photograph of the Nameplate Installation Ceremony at a reception in the Fall and your treasured tree will be enrolled in the Greenwich Tree Conservancy’s roster of Treasured Trees.
