HBF has established a permanent Tree Committee to encourage residents to plant trees that thrive in their strip of land adjacent to the street. Many of our trees have reached the end of their lives, many have died and have not been replaced. The trees on the Recommended Street Tree List do particularly well in Hillsborough’s micro-climate, are not water guzzlers, and are also suitable for street use, (i.e. their roots are not invasive to pathways and streets). We have included the preferred trees of several arborists who work in our area, and also the favorites of neighboring towns.
