Cities and towns may appropriate money for the purpose of acquiring and planting shade
trees in public ways. The tree warden, or a private organization acting with the written consent of the
tree warden, may plant shade trees acquired with public or private funds in a public
way, or if he deems it expedient, upon adjoining land at a distance not exceeding
20 feet from the layout of such public way for the purpose of improving, protecting,
shading or ornamenting the same; provided, however, that the written consent of the
owner of such adjoining land shall first be obtained.
