Shade Tree Commission

Street trees in Norristown are regulated by the Norristown Shade Tree Commission. The Norristown Shade Tree Commission regulates transplanting, heavy pruning and removing shade streets along the streets and sidewalks of Norristown, in addition to all public lands such as parks.

Before you remove or do heavy pruning to a shade tree located on your property along a street or sidewalk you must complete an application and submit it to the Norristown Code Enforcement Department for review and approval by the Shade Tree Commission. Click here to view the application.

In emergency situations that require the immediate removal of other treatment of a shade tree, the work may proceed provided you make application to the Code Enforcement Department within 24 hours following the work.
