Before you cut down your trees or clear an area of brush exceeding 1000 square feet, take a moment please and read our “Tree Clearing” Ordinance.
Ordinance No. 10-25 was adopted on 10-20-10 and can be found in Chapter XXXV, Land Use, Article 11, Section 11-32 Tree Clearing. You may be required to apply for a permit. This ordinance does not prohibit clearing on private property; however it does protect property owners from clearing in restricted areas that may be present on a portion of their property such as wetlands, easements, steep slopes, etc. For further information, go to our website at www.millstone.nj.us under the heading “Government” and the category “Township Code Book” and find the above section in the “Land Use and Development” code book.
