Tree Hearing Notices
Tree removal occurs when tress are dead, dying, diseased, or hazardous. Public trees are protected by Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 87 and the City of Cambridge Tree Ordinance. The removal of a healthy public tree requires an advertised public hearing. If a tree is declared by a Tree Warden to be an immediate hazard to the public, a hearing is not required.
