Who takes care of fallen or broken hanging branches?

The property owner is responsible for any branches or debris that may fall from their trees. The Township conducts a yearly brush pick-up each spring: please check with Department of Public Works for the pick-up schedule. Brush may also be dropped off at the Recycling Center Monday, Wednesday and Saturday between 8 am and 3 pm.
