The Wilton Tree Committee was formed to plant, protect and promote better understanding of the vital role of trees in the community. As part of the Wilton Tree Center Plan, the committee is tagging its tree inventory in the center. The tree inventory lists town-owned and private trees that provide a community benefit, such as shading a sidewalk, roadway or public space and adding to the scenery as in the streetscape.
The tree tags help the committee keep track of changes to those trees, maintenance issues, original donors, or ownership. They link inventory data with individual trees and greatly enhance communication.
