The next time a maintenance or emergency situation calls for the use of Tolland's newly purchased tree truck, there will certainly be a town employee available to operate the truck!
Tolland's public works and public safety employees were trained and certified to operate a tree truck on Tuesday, said Public Works Director Clem Langlois, Jr.
He said the training was completed using trucks donated by New England Arborist Tree Care with no cost to the town.
The town purchased a used tree truck recently for about $30,000. For more information on its uses in town, check out Tolland Patch's article on the new piece of equipment.
