Tree Protection Policy 
The mission of the Haddonfield Shade Tree Commission is to provide safe town trees while replacing, maintaining and preserving existing Borough trees and overall tree canopy. Unless a tree is unsafe, sick or dying it will not be removed. The community is best served and town budget expenses are reduced by maintaining existing mature trees rather than removing and replacing them without just cause. New trees are chosen for their historical longevity, disease resistance, growth characteristics and beauty.

Green Development Checklist
In 2013, the Borough of Haddonfield adopted a resolution to implement a Green Building Policy that will consider opportunities to incorporate green building measures into the design, construction, operation and maintenance of municipal buildings and facilities and will encourage green design for commercial and residential buildings. The purpose of this resolution is to enhance the public welfare and to assure that commercial, residential and civic development is consistent with the Borough's desire to create a more sustainable community.
