Tree Board

Trees

The Holly Springs Town Council is seeking applicants to form a Tree Board that will provide:

  • guidance about how Holly Springs can maintain good standing with Tree City USA standards
  • assistance in planning an annual Arbor Day event
  • assistance with public information initiatives helping residents understand how to maintain trees and tree preservation areas
  • recommendations on methodology and criteria for the removal and replacement of missing, dead or diseased street trees (those planted between sidewalks and town streets) 
  • recommendations on criteria for managing perimeter yard landscapes (those that provide town-required buffers between different developments) and required tree preservation areas.

While not required, knowledge about forestry or landscape architecture or maintenance, or experience as an arborist or master gardener, is preferred. In addition to regular members, the council also is seeking to appoint a younger applicant (age 15 and up) to serve as an ex-officio member on the board.

A meeting schedule has not yet been determined. The board may meet monthly at first and later, once organized, quarterly.
