Shade Tree Program                                                     

Tree-lined streets give character and serenity to East Brunswick's suburban neighborhoods. Their natural beauty is maintained and enhanced by the comprehensive Shade Tree Program managed by the Department of Recreation, Parks & Community Services.

More than 30,000 street-side trees are currently cared for by one township shade tree crew who maintain and remove hazardous trees.

The Division of Parks is responsible for maintaining trees, street side, public areas and in township parks. Residents can contact the Division of Parks at 732-390-6806 to report township tree issues. Should you have a tree emergency during inclement weather or after hours, you may also contact East Brunswick Police Department at 732-390-6900.
