Borough Council recognizes the role that trees play in the Borough ecosystem and that they contribute to the quality of air, reduce noise and visual pollution, help to moderate climatic extremes and conserve energy. Trees enhance property values and the general quality of life in the Borough.

Street trees must be chosen from the Borough of Pottstown approved tree list (PDF). All planting locations must be reviewed prior to planting.
