The purpose of this manual is to serve as a resource guide for caring for Provincetown's community trees. The standards set forth apply only to community trees. They do not apply to trees on private property other than public shade trees. This is explained in more detail within the manual.
While this manual is intended to regulate only community trees, it contains a great deal of information relating to trees in general, and it can serve as a resource guide for their care as well. We hope that private property owners in Provincetown find this resource as useful for trees in their yards and gardens as we designed it to be for trees in the community.
