The Leonia Shade Tree Commission is charged with protecting and renewing one of our town's most important qualities: its fabulous population of shade trees. Through the efforts of the Commission, Leonia has been recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation as a “Tree City U.S.A." for the past twenty-one years.

Tree Evaluations

If you have a tree that is on Borough property or on the right of way in front of your property that looks damaged or diseased, contact the Shade Tree Commission via "submit a problem" on the website for an inspection. If the tree does need to have work performed on it, the work will be performed by the Borough at no cost to you.  If there is an emergency please contact Borough Hall (Monday thru Thursday) or the Police Department (Saturday and Sunday). 

Planting New Trees

In addition to maintaining the Borough's existing tree population, the Shade Tree Commission is also responsible for planting new trees. If you would like to be put on the list for a tree to be planted on the Borough right-of-way in front of your home, call Borough Hall and leave your name and address. The Commission will have your planting site evaluated by a New Jersey Certified Tree Expert, who will recommend to the Commission an appropriate tree for the site.
