Tree Removal & Protection

Chapter XXVI of the Borough Code, entitled "trees", regulates the removal of trees on private property in certain cases. If you are contemplating removing a tree on your property, you should contact the Department of Public Works to find out if a permit is required. If a permit is required, you must complete and submit a Tree Removal Permit Application (PDF) to the Department of Public Works and obtain a permit before removing any tree or trees.
