Shade Tree Commission
Fall Tree Planting and the GREEN MENACE
It’s fall planting season once again. The Shade Tree Commission will be planting trees in several of the empty spaces in the curb strips throughout the borough. If you would like to request a tree to fill an empty spot in front of your home, please call the Department of Public Works at 546.2580 or Shade Tree commission at 856.952.2185.

No matter how many trees are planted each year, there are always more locations in need of greening. Residents are free to plant their own tree along the curb strip, providing they contact Public Works or the Shade Tree Commission prior to planting. The proposed planting site will be reviewed and a list of recommended trees will be provided, based upon the size of the planting area, tree species in the surrounding area and location of overhead and underground utilities. ONE CALL must be notified prior to any digging.

Caution!!! Because of growing concerns about the spread of the emerald ash borer, NO ASH TREES are permitted along the curb strip and we recommend that residents discontinue planting ash on their own properties as well. Emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, is an exotic metallic green beetle that was discovered in southeastern Michigan near Detroit in the summer of 2002. The larvae (the immature stage) feed on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the tree's ability to transport water and nutrients. The adults leave a “D” shaped exit hole in the infested trees. Emerald ash borer probably arrived in the United States on solid wood packing material carried in cargo ships or airplanes originating in its native Asia. The beetle was first discovered in Somerset County, New Jersey in the spring of 2014 and as far south as Morristown, Burlington County in May of this year. The beetle has killed hundreds of millions of trees in North America since 2002, and will be in Haddon Heights too. Infected trees die within 2-3 years of initial infestation. As we are anticipating the colder weather, it is important to note that EAB can be transported in firewood. If you think you see signs of the beetle, contact the Department of Agriculture at 609-406-6939.

Homeowners are cautioned to use only licensed tree professionals when dealing with protection or removal of ash trees on their property.

Please adhere to the following guidelines:
  • Lawn Service Contractors MUST remove leaves from your property.
  • Rake your leaves to the CURB. Please DO NOT place leaves in the street. Leaf piles in the street cause flooding and drainage problems during rainstorms.
  • DO NOT place leaves closer than 10 feet from any storm sewer inlet.  
  • DO NOT mix leaves and brush. Your can(s) will NOT be collected if it is mixed. When the trucks are taken to be dumped the dump can and will refuse our trucks if there is anything mixed in that is not allowed to be. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.  

Police Department:

The Haddon Heights Police Department is in need of Crossing Guards. If you’re in good health, enjoy being out doors and spending time helping children you may be qualified.Crossing Guards typically start part time and move to a permanent position when a post becomes available. The hourly pay is $11.89. All interested applicants should apply at the: Haddon Heights Police Department, 625 Station Avenue Haddon Heights, NJ 08035. If you have any questions, please call 856-547-0614 ext. 10. 
Fire Department:
Check your Batteries! 
Most fatal fires occur at night. Every home needs working smoke alarms to provide an early warning. Install smoke alarms in all sleeping rooms, hallways that lead to sleeping areas, basements and each additional level of your home. A good time to remember to check your smoke alarm and change the batteries is when you change your clocks twice a year as daylight savings time begins and ends.

Prepare and practice an escape plan! Crawl low under smoke. Plan where to meet outside. Once you’re out, Stay out! Remember, almost every day a smoke alarm saves somebody’s life.
