Massachusetts law requires that every town and city have a qualified tree warden, either elected or appointed. The tree warden mandate is found in Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 41, Section 1 and Section 106.

Most municipalities comply with this law, and we strive to maintain a list of current tree wardens. Please email us at for information. You may also contact your town administrator or town clerk to request the tree warden’s name and contact information.

See the map of Massachusetts cities and towns for a visual illustration of towns and cities that have listed tree wardens.

The Massachusetts Tree Wardens’ and Foresters’ Association is a private, non-profit membership organization, and we encourage all tree wardens to join the MTWFA and take advantage of our educational and networking opportunities.
