The Township of Nutley has had an active Shade Tree Program since 1912.

The Shade Tree Department is responsible for the maintenance and care of Street and Park Trees under the direction of the Director of Parks and Public Property.  The Shade Tree Department consists of four full time employees who are qualified to trim, remove and plant trees among various other tasks that come with the Shade Tree Department.  We also have a Township Forester that makes inspections on Thursdays.

Nutley has been Tree City USA Approved since 1988 and celebrates Arbor Day every year with our Living Memorial Tree Planting Program and Bench Dedication.  Our Living Memorial Tree Planting Program has benefited our parks system since 1992 adding over 1100 various types of trees.  It continues to be a popular program to which we have added a bench dedication program.
