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.

 25th Anniversary Workshop and Celebration

A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the 25th Anniversary event a success. The event was well attended by tree wardens, deputy tree wardens, arborists, landscape architects, science and horticultural professionals, and members of local and state departments. Exhibitors representing local and national companies, utility companies, non-profits and associations, and government offices filled the room. The educational topics were informative and lively with a great line-up of speakers. The evening portion of the event was a wonderful opportunity for socializing and honoring the recent graduates of Tree Wardens' School and tree wardens with more than 25 years service along with the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award.
