The Town of Deerfield requested technical assistance in 2016 to conduct a public tree inventory on some of the Town’s more populous streets. Funding was provided by the District Local Technical Assistance (DLTA) program funded by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This inventory will serve many purposes including:

  • Establishing a baseline with which trends, such as trees removed and trees planted, can be compared
  • Considering street trees as part of the Town’s overall green infrastructure
  • Helping the DPW manage maintenance and planting schedules
  • Helping the Town to set tree planting and maintenance goals and determine budgets
  • Supporting claims to FEMA in the case of significant losses due to severe weather and other hazards
  • Supporting applications for funding tree planting and planning projects

The baseline tree inventory was conducted in the summer and fall of 2016 by FRCOG staff.
