Forestry & Beautification Committee

The Forestry and Beautification (F&B) Committee of the Town of Washington Grove oversees the health and maintenance of trees, shrubs and the general appearance of Town land in the residential area of town.

The committee liaises to the Town Council through the Council member for F&B as does the Woods Committee whose purview is the health and maintenance of the two Town forests.

Through the F&B committee interested residents can be part of ensuring our continued tree canopy by selecting new trees for planting each year, determining tree health needs, developing landscaping plans around public buildings and in our parks, supervising installation of new trees, and planting annual/perennial plants at the Town entrance and the Town Hall. F&B meeting times are published in the Town Bulletin; we’d love to have you join us!

The committee currently consists of Georgette Cole (Chair), Audrey Maskery (Council liaison), Deborah Mehlferber, Cynthia Werts, Jay Everhart, Dan York, and John Compton. If you are curious or have any questions, please contact any of us.
