Middletown Shade Tree Committee is Seeking Volunteers
Middletown is currently seeking volunteers to serve on the Shade Tree Committee.
We work in conjunction with the schools, Recreation & Parks and the Department of Public Works. Volunteers help with planting, pruning, watering and keeping a survey of our city trees; as well as educating the public about the benefits of Urban Trees.
