Wood


If you have branches, limbs, or stumps, you will have to secure a licensed contractor for the proper removal of wood.

The Town of Shrewsbury is Asian Long-horned Beetle (ALB) zoned, so the handling of wood must be taken with extreme care. View a list of ALB Licensed Contractors (PDF) who can properly dispose of wood.
