Know Your City’s Trees! March Contest

Where in South Boston is this tree? This tree is in the process of being cut in a lopsided manner as part of a construction project. In Massachusetts, the cutting of any shade tree on a public way requires a permit, which can only be issued after a public hearing (see Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 87, Section 3).

Tech Networks of Boston supports the preservation of mature urban trees, which make neighborhoods more pleasant, filter our air and water, and moderate temperatures.

We hope you’ll use this contest as a fun way to get to know your city’s trees!
