Tree Removal & Preservation

Tree Conservation

The Township Committee of Morris Township has found that tree conservation is beneficial to promote a desirable visual environment, promote conservation of valuable natural resources, and prevent degradation of the environment.

Therefore, the township regulates and controls indiscriminate and excessive cutting of trees in conjunction with an application for site plan approval or major or minor subdivision approval within the township.


The regulations are designed to protect older specimen trees and to encourage careful site design and grading to promote the preservation of existing trees. Tree removal permits are required for development projects that propose the removal of trees.
