Shade Tree Commission

Shade Tree Commission

The Middlesex Shade Tree Commission was created with the passage of a local ordinance. It is the responsibility of the commission to maintain and protect all shade trees on Borough property, in Borough parks and along all Borough streets. All trees on a Borough street or roadway are the responsibility of the Shade Tree Commission.

Residents are advised to contact Borough Hall if they have any concerns regarding a Borough tree. Borough Hall will then put the resident in touch with the Shade Tree Commissioner.

It is against the law for a resident to cut, prune, damage or disturb a Borough tree.

This commission is also responsible for the planting of new trees along Borough streets and roadways in an effort to improve and beautify our town.
