Tree clear-cutting attracts renewed attention in Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury - The issue of tree clear-cutting was again a topic of discussion at the June 9 meeting of the Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen. A topic at the spring Town Meeting, this agenda item was to further discuss and take action on the issue. What to some is simply a clearing of trees for economic, aesthetic, or safety concerns, is, to others, a despoiling of the land and a decrease in property values. Massachusetts has no state laws regulating tree cutting on private property, although the state is the eighth-most forested in the U.S. Clear-cutting on state land is similarly a patchwork of case-by-case decisions. In each town in Massachusetts, the local government has been left to create its own laws and regulations.
