Shade Tree Commission Approval

The Borough of Sea Girt has many mature trees and shrubs that enhance our community's beauty and appeal. Borough officials realize the importance of preserving this natural asset and have given the Shade Tree Commission the sole responsibility of regulating the planting, maintenance, and removal of all trees planted within the right-of-way areas adjoining our streets.

All property owners in the Borough must obtain approval to plant, prune, or remove any trees or shrubs in their front yard between the sidewalk and street. Shade tree approval is mandatory, but free of charge. Assistance can also be provided to help you select the appropriate tree for planting or recommend the proper care for existing trees.

If you wish to contact the Commission, please use the Shade Tree Work App - Proposed on our Forms and Documents page under Shade Tree Commission.
