Why won’t the city remove a street tree in front of my home?

Rahway is responsible over 6,600 shade trees in our city and has the honor of being named a Tree City USA for its care and promotion of healthy trees. These trees help contribute to the attractive character of Rahway and it is also estimated that each street tree adds $5,000 to the value of a home and keeps homes cooler in the summer. The city will remove a street tree only if it is dead or is in immediate danger to life and property. If you would like to have a street tree placed in front of your home, please email us and include your name, address, and phone number so we can add you to the street tree list.
