Through December 31, 2020, this approval body of the City of Lancaster will conduct all of its regularly scheduled meetings and special meetings virtually rather than meeting in person. Zoom will be the preferred meeting service for public meetings, and the link to join this meeting will be posted directly below this paragraph of text 30 minutes before the meeting. Agendas are available below.
What We Do
The Shade Tree Commission, working in conjunction with the City Arborist, works to maximize the benefit derived from public shade trees by establishing policies for the planting, removal, maintenance and protections of trees along City streets and sidewalks. See the Shade Tree Commission Ordinance, the Tree Manual and the Shade Tree Commission Bylaws.
The Commission meets as necessary, usually the third Tuesday of each month, at 7:30 PM in City Hall, 120 North Duke Street. The Department of Public Works must receive all proposed agenda items 14 days prior to the meeting. Call the City Arborist, Jim Bower, at (717) 291-4846 for more information.
