Shade Tree Information

The committee is a volunteer group currently composed of eleven members. Our council liaison is Councilwoman Julie Brodsky. The committee is an advisory group working with the Mayor and Council with the objective of preserving and enhancing the Borough tree canopy. As such, they work cooperatively with the various boards, the Borough engineer, Department of Public Works, the Construction Official, and Shade Tree Inspector Lyle Garcia.

As part of their advisory responsibility, the committee strives to assure that the Borough Tree Preservation Ordinance is complied with by our residents, contractors, and tree service companies. The Ordinance regulates the removal and planting of trees both in the right of way and on private property with the understanding that owners have the right of reasonable use and enjoyment of their property.

*A permit is required to remove any tree which measures over 6" caliper. If you wish to remove a tree your tree service company should complete an application available at the Borough Hall or on the Borough website. Tree removal may also require replacement with another tree.

*The Borough has a street tree program which allows residents to have shade trees planted by the Borough in the right of way in front of their property. Requests for planting may be obtained at the Borough Hall.

Occasionally, homeowners may experience conditions where dead or dying trees on a neighbor's property may pose a hazard. In situations such as this the condition should be discussed with the neighbor to resolve the problem. If a compromise cannot be reached a complaint may be filed.
