Resident Resources – Tree Commission

Salem Tree Commission

Salem’s Tree Commission that works with Salem’s Tree Warden to:

  • Promote the protection, planting, and maintenance of these trees,
  • Retain Salem’s status as a “Tree City USA” community,
  • Hear appeals when applications for the removal of Protected Trees have been denied,
  • Advise petitioners who wish to remove either Public or Protected Trees in advance of a public tree hearing with the Tree Warden.

There is a wealth of information and resources on the Tree Commission’s web site on how to select and care for trees.
