SWIM and Nahant's Arbor Day Proclamation
On April 5th, 2018, the Nahant Selectmen accepted the text of the Arbor Day Proclamation for 2018 (see attached pdf below) and expressed support for planting trees around town, including tree planting by children during a Town activity event. SWIM had requested that the Proclamation be declared by the Selectmen in order for Nahant to comply with its application for designation as a Tree City USA. According to the application process, this Proclamation must be made official one year before applying for that status. The proposal should be included in the Warrant for 2019 and, if the Selectmen and residents choose to make Nahant a Tree City USA next year, monies could then be channeled to the Department of Public Works for a tree maintenance and planting program.
