Nstar's Chemical Defoliation on Cape Cod -- the facts


Unfortunately, Nstar remains Everstubborn and intends to defoliate easements with pesticides again in 2015. Download Nstars proposed 2015 Yearly Operational Plan including maps of spraying and "touchups" in your town. Check your deed carefully if you are on a right of way. Comment period to MDAR ends on March 27. Last fall they sprayed Sea Horse Farm in Harwich and failed to notify abutters all over the Cape. When will the regulations start protecting US, Nstar customers???

What You Can Do

This lovely watercolor was donated by local artist Nancy Cole.

The Mission of GreenCAPE is to encourage nontoxic methods of pest control, agriculture, home, garden, lawn and turf care and so eliminate hazards from our air and water. We are located on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

We compile and distribute information about pesticides and their toxicity, provide information on safe alternatives, and work to eliminate the use of dangerous chemicals and their negative impact on our environment and our health.

Our mission rests upon the premise that public awareness is the most effective of all the long-term forces for influencing the health of our environment.
