The Borough’s Shade Tree Board is responsible for all Borough Trees. These are trees planted in certain right of ways, and in between the curb and sidewalk. To determine if a tree is on private property or is a Borough tree please call!

  • Do NOT trim, treat or repair a tree yourself. Obtain a permit from the Borough Office
  • Report large limbs that are dead or rotting to the Borough Office
  • Report storm and accident damage immediately to the Borough Office or Public Works Department


The Shade Tree Board is offering an opportunity for a Federal Tax Deduction that can contribute to a long-lasting benefit of natural beauty and health to your town. Donations of $100.00 or more for the purchase of new street trees will be recognized by a memorial plaque located inside Borough Hall. Contributions of less than $100.00 will also go towards the purchase of new trees. A separate account has been established for these funds! To make a contribution, or for more information, please call the Borough office, at 829-0120.
