How do I know if a tree is a borough tree?
Borough trees are those planted on the borough right-of-way. Typically, the borough right-of-way includes the road, the planting strip between the curb and the sidewalk, the sidewalk itself, and often extends a few feet into your front lawn. Trees in the public parks are also borough trees. If you are not sure whether a tree belongs to you or the borough, please contact the Shade Tree Committee.
