Princeton Shade Tree Commission

The Princeton Shade Tree Commission serves to protect and manage our community forest and shade trees.  Trees and shrubs are a natural resource that provide aesthetic, economic, ecological, environmental and health benefits to the municipality of Princeton and its inhabitants. The treatment of trees and shrubs on individual properties can have significant impact not only on those individual properties, but also on neighboring properties, the streetscape, the tree canopy and the entire municipality. Princeton’s tree and shrub ordinance (unofficial version) establishes rules and regulations for the stewardship of this resource within Princeton, on both public and private property. 

Princeton’s five-year Community Forestry Management Plan has been approved by the State and the New Jersey Community Forestry Council. The goal of the plan is to enhance, maintain, and support a sustainable community forest in a proactive and cost-effective manner that promotes the aesthetic, environmental, economic, cultural, and social vitality of Princeton.

Of interest to residents of Princeton is the tree inventory which has been completed by Morris Arboretum of the University of Pennsylvania. Click on the Tree Inventory to obtain an up to date report on Princeton's street trees, including location, species and status. 

Princeton is pleased to have been designated a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.
