Trees in public spaces are a resource which provides great benefit to people, wildlife, and the ecosystem. The mission of the Shade Tree Committee is to ensure that trees within the Borough of Swissvale are planted, maintained, and fostered with due regard for public safety, economy, education, and enjoyment.


The Committee typically meets at 7:00pm on the second Wednesday of the month at the Wilkins School Community Center. Meeting dates are subject to change, so be sure to check the borough calendar for schedule updates.
