Tree Maintenance

Tree​s on Town Property​

​Trees within the right-of-way of any public street are owned by the town and cannot be removed and/or trimmed without permission from the town's tree warden.

Our tree warden, Todd Robbins, ​is responsible for administering all aspects of the town's tree maintenance program​ under Article III of the Conservation Ordinance (Chapter 18)​. The public right-of-way can extend as much as 1​1​ feet from the edge of pavement so property owners should contact the Tree Warden if they have a​ question​ or concern about a tree ​within this area. This also includes trees located on public lands owned by the Town, such as the Gull Crest ​property​, Winnick Woods and any conservation land within public subdivisions.

​Todd Robbins can be reached on his cell phone at 207-756-4113 or via email at

Residents can also contact the Public Works offices at 207-799-4151 for information.
