RECENT CHANGES! PLEASE READ!

As of the week of March 21st 2022, tree removal companies are required to be registered with the Township.
Residents must use a company from our list of registered Tree Removal Companies. If you do not see your tree company on this list, please make them aware of our new registration policy and direct them to this page. We have changed and updated our tree removal permit application to reflect this. The previous application is no longer in use and we will not accept any applications using the old materials or information.

Please review the full Chapter 227 on Maplewood Township Trees.

Chapter 227-8 states:
"No person shall remove any tree 12 inches or more in caliper, or authorize the removal of such tree, on any land within the Township of Maplewood unless the owner of such tree or the person authorized by the owner to remove said tree shall first obtain a permit."

Trees with a diameter of less than 12 inches do not require a removal permit.

For the removal of trees on private residential property:
A tree removal application must be submitted to the township to facilitate inspection, and obtain a permit. Please see the attachment below for the tree removal permit application.

For the removal or pruning of Township trees (on Township Property):
Please call our department at (973) 762-1175 ext. 2 to facilitate inspection.

Note: Please thoroughly read through and complete this application. Any missing materials will deem your application incomplete and it will not be accepted by our office.

YES--CERTIFIED MAILINGS MUST BE SENT TO ALL ABUTTING NEIGHBORS, REGARDLESS OF THE TREES LOCATION OR CONDITION (DEAD/ALIVE, ETC.) NO EXCEPTIONS
