Shade Tree Commission
Trees are, and always will be, an integral part of our community. Because trees are living, growing, dynamic parts of our Borough, special care must be taken to ensure that they provide the largest possible benefit for the longest time. Recognizing the long-term benefits brought about the reformation of the Shade Tree Advisory Board. The goals of the Board are to increase the number and rate of new plantings; decrease the rate of loss of old growth by carefully managing and supervising utility pruning; provide guidelines and policies for proper maintenance and communicate to residents the Borough’s policy on trees.
