  1. Thank you Tree Warden Mike Micieli! Watertown is in need of more trees to help cool our town, to assist with noise abatement and cleaner air.

  2. A big Thank you to Tree Warden Mike Micieli for getting us more trees & tree care!
    Grateful for our trees, plants, & parks.

  3. Mr. Micieli,

    This is wonderful! I’ll look forward to seeing the results. Will you be joined by a community team (for instance, including Trees for Watertown) for the specifics of this greening project? They’d be a great group, combining their expertise and their ability to get the message out on the difference this grant has made for Watertown!

  4. Great job! I would suggest, if economically feasible, more tree canopies on Arsenal St, Mt Auburn St and Main St. Walking or running on those streets during a bright, sunny is the easiest way to get a sunburn.
