Good Morning Mr. Lipton,

This email is in response to your email to Commissioner Watson dated November 11, 2014 requesting a list of tree wardens by municipality. After an inquiry to Department staff, this Department does not maintain a list of tree wardens in Massachusetts. However, staff provided a website that should have the information you are looking for. It is the Mass. Tree Wardens and Forest Association's website at:<>.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
