Shade Tree Permits

In accordance with the City of Linden Ordinance No. 68-22 prior to the removal of any tree either dead or alive, with limited exceptions, a permit must be obtained from the City of Linden Division of Engineering Office for each tree which is to be removed. No more than three (3) healthy trees shall be permitted for removal on any property per calendar year.

Road Opening Permits

A Road Opening Permit (ROP) is required by the Linden Engineering Department for excavation within the Street Right-of-Way along all Municipal Roads throughout the City. Permits along County and State Roads are under Union County and NJDOT jurisdictions, respectively. This permit is mainly used by utility companies; however, it is also used by contractors and plumbers for the construction or replacement of sewer lines. There is a fee for the permit.
