Volunteers gearing up for the second year of Barrington’s Tree Inventory

Town of Barrington Tree Inventory volunteers will be in the community conducting data collection from May through August focusing on the Roberta Plat, Nayatt, and Lincoln/Upland areas. 

Part of the Tree Inventory outreach campaign consists of contacting community neighbors, friends and organizations to assist by volunteering to participate in collecting valuable data (number of trees, species, location, size and condition). The goal is to create a database of an estimated 8,000 trees on its 458 streets.

This initiative is a collaboration of the Conservation Commission/Tree Commission as part of the Town’s government, Department of Public Works (DPW), Planning, Building and Resiliency Department and members of the community, with funding from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) Urban & Community Forestry.
