I want to have the tree cut down in front of my house in the curb area. What do I do?

The decision to remove a tree must be made by the Department of Public Works or the Shade Tree Advisory Committee. You can call Public Works at 201-664-2349 or the Committee at 201-664-7100, ext. 149. There is an Ordinance that prohibits the removal or pruning of a Municipal tree. If you remove or prune a town tree, you will be fined.
