The Town of Washington, Connecticut
• Tom Osborne, Tree Warden
Before You Cut That Tree...If a tree is near your property side line, talk to your neighbor to make sure you both agree where the property line is located.
If the tree, or bush, you want to cut is within 100 feet of any stream, river, lake or wetlands, you may need to get a permit. Get in touch with the Inland Wetlands Commission. There are several different permits according to different situations.
If a tree is close to a Town road, it may be in the Town's right-of-way.
