EAST MONTPELIER — Most trees growing in the right of way along East Montpelier’s 62 miles of town roads would be afforded special protection under a plan the Select Board wasn’t ready to approve Monday night.

A “shade-tree preservation plan” — one, which as written would give the local tree warden broad authority over virtually any tree with a diameter of more than 4 inches growing in the town’s right of way.
