Trees growing along the roadways of Newton have been a part of the fabric of the community for over 100 years. How did these trees get here? What is their importance? What can we expect in the future? The City’s street trees provide incredible benefits to the public but also require thoughtful care, planning and perspective.We will look at how the trees and their care have evolved over the years.We also will discuss ways to ensure these trees remain assets to the community.
