Volunteer Opportunities - Shade Tree Commission

Franklin Lakes Shade Tree Commission is seeking volunteers to assist our Shade Tree Commissioners. Residents are encouraged to become involved in the various activities of the Commission which assists/advises our local government in education, monitoring and replanting trees in accordance with guidelines established by the State of NJ.

Why Volunteer?
Community forests add beauty to our borough and increase property values. Trees also decrease regional flooding and erosion. They contribute shade from heat and wind protection form cold. Trees enhance privacy, buffer noise, and provide homes for wildlife. If you appreciate the value of trees and want to contribute to your community, please consider becoming a shade tree volunteer.
