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. Good luck!

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 Tuesday.
