Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Mulch Volcano?

  • What is the difference between the STC and Tree Conservation?

The Shade Tree Commission's mission embraces tree conservation, and is more than just tree conservation. The Rumson Shade Tree Commission promotes "Right Tree, Right Place" as a means to develop a thriving tree resource in the borough. This simply means that trees need space to grow both above and below ground. Choose a tree where the ultimate height and spread will not conflict with pedestrians, vehicles, utility lines nor buildings.
