A sycamore and a silver maple at 151 Skunk Lane may become the newest additions to Wilton\u2019s Notable Tree List. To make the list \u2014 also known as the Significant Tree List \u2014 a tree must be jointly determined by Wilton\u2019s tree warden and tree committee to be \u201cof great rarity, size or age, or associated with a historical event or person, or of special value to the community for their unique scenic enrichment to a property.\u201d In 2015, a white oak on Danbury Road, believed to be more than 200 years old, became Wilton\u2019s first \u201cnotable tree.\u201d Three more trees have since been added to the list \u2014\u00a0a European white birch on Bhasking Ridge Road, a white oak at Gaylord Drive, and a red oak on Musket Ridge Road. All four were accepted as notable trees due to their age and size. Wilton Tree Committee Chair Kate Throckmorton said the sycamore and maple at 151 Skunk Road are \u201cvery old and extremely large.\u201d Throckmorton estimates the trees are around 75 years old. \u201cTheir shapes are elegant and they are unique in being close to each other and the primary home, while both stand majestic in their landscape,\u201d she told The Bulletin. The owner of the property on which the trees are situated \u201cshowed the two trees to one of the Wilton Tree Committee members in a social setting,\u201d said Throckmorton. The member indicated \u00a0the trees \u201cmight be appropriate to be included on the Significant Tree List,\u201d said Throckmorton, and the owners were \u201cpleased to hear that.\u201d After other tree committee members examined the trees and \u201cagreed to their stature,\u201d said Throckmorton, the owners decided to apply to have their trees considered for notable tree status. Residents can nominate notable trees by filling out the Wilton Tree Committee\u2019s Notable Tree Form\u00a0\u2014 available at here\u00a0\u2014\u00a0and submitting it to the tree warden or tree committee along with a photograph or sketch of the tree. Throckmorton said the tree committee provided the form to the Madeira-Castle family, and as of July 31, \u201cthey are in the process of completing it.\u201d Wilton\u2019s Notable Tree List serves as an educational tool and helps raise public awareness of significant trees in town. Although securing a tree on the list doesn\u2019t provide special protection or regulation to it, owners of significant or notable trees may receive guidance from the committee or tree warden to help support and prolong the life of the tree.
