Shade Tree Commission Update

There’s an old proverb that goes, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now.” The Frenchtown Shade Tree Commission is building a list of potential tree planting locations along our streets in the borough right-of-way. Generally, this is the strip of ground between the streets and sidewalks. Should residents have an interest in having a shade tree at their location, please send an email to Brenda Shepherd. Her email address is: The Shade Tree Commission will assess the area, find the right tree for your location and then work with DPW to see that it’s properly planted.
