The Town of Trumbull is responsible for the care, custody and control of its’ urban forests, which extends over 2000 acres of park, open space and greenbelts, as well as 400+ linear miles within the Town’s “Right-of-Ways” property lines.
These urban forests are essential within our community and as such, we have developed our tree management program with the safety of the public and stewardship of these assets in mind.
