Southborough’s Rock monitors trees

Dick Rock

Southborough – Dick Rock, senior equipment operator and tree warden at the Southborough Department of Public Works, says there’s no such thing as a typical day on the job, “You gotta be pretty versatile to work here…you’re not doing the same thing every day.”

The tree warden is responsible for monitoring all the trees on public lands in town. The rest of Rock’s time is spent monitoring the transfer station, helping care for, or even dig, graves at the cemetery, and a variety of other tasks. He might even occasionally have to fix water main breaks, change traffic lights, or sand and plow the roads in the winter.
