Dear Neighbor -
It has been a tough year for trees in the Borough. We’ve lost many of our most beautiful, biggest and oldest trees to age, disease and a series of harsh winter storms!
The Shade Tree Commission and a team of dedicated volunteers have been working to restore the borough’s tree cover and have planted over 100 new trees over the last few years! But we’re still losing trees faster than we can plant them…
This fall, the Shade Tree Commission will again be leading volunteers in planting trees. We need your help in planting the next hundred!
Our tree order will be due in late summer, so if you are interested in providing a home for a tree, please let us know soon.
We plant trees along the streets and sidewalks, as they provide maximum benefit for reducing heat island effects, shading our sidewalks and calming traffic. Trees are planted either in the strip between the sidewalk and the street, or on front, side or rear lawns within 10' of the sidewalk. The trees typically cost round $60 and are planted by volunteers -
a great bargain!
If you are interested in providing a home for a tree on your property, please fill out the form here: https://tinyurl.com/stc-fall-18.
