"Preserve Newton's Trees: Urgent Action Needed"

Half of Newton's street trees vanished since 1970, impacting climate and community. Only 48% of land had tree canopy in 2017. Cutting healthy trees hurts everyone, affecting air quality, drainage, energy efficiency, and health.

Join us to protect Newton's trees:

  • Safeguard all trees 6" DBH and larger

  • Apply consistent rules citywide

  • Notify neighbors about tree removal plans

  • Shield trees from construction damage

  • Require assessment by Certified Arborist for removal

  • Demand strict penalties for violations
