Quarterly Meetings

Beginning in January 2017, Southeastern Mass. Tree Wardens and Arborists Association (SEMTWAA) will hold quarterly dinner meetings at the John Carver Inn in Plymouth.  The 2017 dates are January 19 – March 16 – June 15 – October 19. Advance reservations are required, generally two days before the event. For information, email Kim Hillman.  The Southeast Tree Wardens’ & Arborists’ Association also holds an annual field day and equipment show on the 3rd Thursday in September.


The Southeastern Massachusetts Tree Wardens’ and Arborists’ Association (SEMTWAA) was organized in 1947 as a satellite organization of the MTWFA. In that era, there were five or six similar groups representing various regions of the state. Each arranged its own programs and considered subjects of local interest. Until 2015, when the Western Mass. group reactivated, SEMTWAA was the only such group still in existence. It is now an independent entity with its own officers and board. A Plymouth County representative and several other SEMTWAA members serve on the MTWFA board, ensuring communication and cooperation between the two associations.
