The Shade Tree Commission consists of five commissioners and one alternate commissioner who oversee the regulation, planting and care of shade and ornamental trees and shrubberies located on Borough streets, highways, parks, public easements or rights-of way. The Borough has earned a Tree City, USA designation award for the thirteenth year in a row through the efforts of the Shade Tree Commission.
Apply for Permission
Residents must seek permission from the Commission prior to planting, removing, shaving roots or pruning trees on any Borough right-of-way by filing an application at Borough Hall. The Borough’s arborist will investigate all application requests and will make a determination which will be forwarded to the applicant. An application must also be filed for reporting a hazardous tree condition on Borough rights-of-way. Only imminent emergencies should be reported to the Police Department.
