Seeking: 10 towns for

The Vermont Urban & Community Forestry (UCF) Program is looking for towns in the Lake Champlain Basin interested in learning more about roadside vegetation management along their rural roads. The Resilient Right-of-Way project is collecting information about roadside vegetation scenarios along Vermont’s backroads and the challenges faced by road crews charged with maintaining them.


Participating towns will work with UCF staff to highlight local concerns about roadside trees, shrubs, and plants and discuss town goals regarding road safety, maintenance, and aesthetics. Towns will then receive results of a broad roadside vegetation assessment and recommended strategies to increase the health, safety, and longevity of healthy roadside vegetation.


There is no fee for participation in the Resilient Right-of-Way project; however, the UCF team asks for time from a small project advisory committee during project scoping and receipt of the assessment. Road foremen are strongly encouraged to provide input alongside the town tree warden, conservation commission members, select board members, or other interested participants.


To learn more, contact Joanne Garton of the Urban & Community Forestry Program at joanne.garton@vermont.gov or visit https://vtcommunityforestry.org/program/technical-assistance/resilient-right-of-ways.
