About the Association

The Tree Warden's Association of Connecticut, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating tree wardens and others about tree wardens roles and responsibilities (in the proper care and control of ornamental trees, shade trees, and shrubs for the purpose of assuring their continued preservation and natural beauty) through education and advocacy.

The Tree Wardens' Association of Connecticut has a membership of around 200 individuals, primarily Tree Wardens, but also representing the municipal, arboriculture, forestry, and horticultural fields.

Every city and town in Connecticut must have an appointed tree warden (Connecticut General Statutes Section 23-58). The legislative intent of this statute is to assure that municipalities maintain, care and protect a valuable and essential natural resource - municipally owned trees.
