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.
