Tree Commission

2017 Meeting Schedule

Tree Commission meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm in the 2nd Floor (Main Floor) Conference Room (next to the the Building Department) of the Hamden Government Center located at 2750 Dixwell Avenue, unless otherwise noted.


The mission of the Hamden Tree Commission is to promote the conservation and stewardship of a healthy, safe, and vibrant tree canopy within the Town of Hamden. The Commission is charged with assessing the current tree inventory and canopy cover, developing a tree management plan, and evaluating completed work and programs. The Commission will act as a resource for the community in regards to arboricultural education and planting of new trees. The Commission seeks to increase public understanding of the vital role trees play in our natural environment and character of our community.
