Theresa et al-
I'm on the Tree Board in Belgrade and we have a draft ordinance (which for
several reasons will not go to the voters this year unfortunately) that
among other things prohibits planting invasive woodies on public property
including road rights-of-way (referencing a list on file at the town office
provided by yours truly and containing all the familiar woody invasives
including Acer platanoides).
I'll send you a copy of the draft ordinance directly.

Subject: Municipal policies re planting invasives
Does anyone know of citiesor towns that have adopted policies
addresseing plantings of invasive species on publicly owned lands .. I seem
to remember hearing that some municipalities and even planning boards had
tackled this issue.
We would like to take some draft wording to the Wayne Selectboard next
