Town of Wendell, Massachusetts
Tree Warden and Selectboard
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
In accordance with Massachusetts General Laws (MGL), Chapter 87, Section 3 (Cutting of Public Shade Trees; Hearings; Damages), the Town of Wendell Tree Warden and Selectboard will hold a Public Hearing regarding an application from National Grid to remove or prune public shade trees on Thursday, February 2, 2023 at 7pm at the Town Hall, 6 Center St., Wendell, MA.
The program included a tree-by-tree hazard assessment of public and private trees, along the main three-phase lines which serve the community. The work is recommended to remove hazard trees and prune for additional clearance in order to reduce tree outage problems affecting large numbers of customers served by these main lines. National Grid’s arborists have identified nineteen (19) town-owned trees for removal along Wendell Depot Rd. and Lockes Village Rd. Town trees located within the public way that are designated for removal have been posted with a notice of public hearing in the field.
A complete list of town trees designated for removal or pruning including information about the location, size, and species of the affected trees and the reason for work proposed, is available at the Wendell Town Offices and Wendell Free Library during normal business hours.
