Tree Board

The Tree Board is responsible for hearing requests from citizens regarding planting, maintenance and removal of street and park trees. It also is responsible for establishing guidelines for spacing of trees on town property.

Treasure Trees

The board's Treasure Trees Program is intended to create awareness of and give recognition to the preservation of significant trees in the Hillsborough area. A significant tree may be on public or private land, and can be recognized for its historic value; beauty; value to wildlife; or exceptional size, age, shape or color.


The board meets at 9 a.m. the third Wednesday of each month in the Town Barn, located at 101 E. Orange St. on the Town Hall campus. Parking is accessed from East Corbin Street.
