Shade Tree

Shade Tree Information

The Shade Tree Committee is a group of volunteers appointed by the Mayor and Council devoted to the beautification of the Borough through the regulation, planting and care of shade and ornamental trees, located on any public property, including public right-of-ways and parks.

In 1997, the Mayor and Council passed Borough Ordinance 97-5 , which codified the regulation and control of the Borough's shade trees.

The committee meets regularly. For information, please contact Councilman Capilli at
