Tree Masters, a company specializing in tree removal, will be in Lower Village today removing a few trees ahead of the Lower Village traffic improvements to begin this spring. Discussion of which trees to be removed was thoughtfully considered, with input from the Stow Tree Warden, Highway Department and our consultants and construction contractors. After close inspection, a couple of the trees along the south side of Route 117 near the Stow Cafe showed serious signs of decay. Some trees however, are especially healthy, and we'll be making every effort to not disturb them as the project moves forward. The work should be completed within one day. Please be in touch with the Planning Department office if you have any questions. 978-897-5098.
