Rural Road Resilient Right-of-Ways
Joanne Garton, Technical Assistance Coordinator, VT Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation
Rural roadside vegetation shapes our towns, shades our backroads, livens our landscapes, and grows character in our front yards. Management of town roadside is largely at the discretion of a few individuals in each town; as such, it’s no surprise that towns handle their municipal right-of-ways differently from each other. Learn about the elements of a backroad that towns value and manage, the processes that make roadside vegetation management cooperative, and the partners you need to engage to plan thoughtfully for resilient roadside trees.
