The goal of the City’s Shade Tree Advisory Committee is to beautify the community by encouraging the planting of trees in Hackensack, especially curbside trees. Each year an area of the City is evaluated for a designated tree planting of a variety of 20 trees.

Since the Committee’s inception in 1989, it has worked to plant over 500 trees in Hackensack. As an honored Tree City USA participant for 29 years, Hackensack celebrates National Arbor Day each year. A listing of the past plantings is available by clicking here.

The Committee also accepts donations and estate remembrances to honor loved ones. Please contact us at 201-646-3907 for more information. Committee members are appointed by the Mayor & Council for a three-year term. To see the City’s Shade Tree Ordinance, click here.
