Mike Ornsby knows “about 30” trees with exposed roots. Pete will volunteer documenting where these trees are. Suggestions: we can mulch to prevent mowing.

Tree City USA: We are considering applying for this status, as we already meet most of the eligibility requirements. Problem is that we need to show a per capita expense for trees. Pete suggested that is we add all of money our town spends on trees (public workers hours, etc), we may already meet that per capita expense of about $10,000. Can we do this? Sharon has this information. The per capita expense is within our FMP, so the info is available. (Total budget, divided by 5200)Who wil be in charge?Clem?
