Volunteer for Shade Tree

It's the perfect time to become a member of the Shade Tree Commission! A Street tree inventory will soon be underway by a Tree Professional (pursuant to a DEP grant) to assess tree conditions, risks, and tree/sidewalk conflicts. The tree inventory will serve as the foundation for developing a plan for future tree maintenance, planting, and removal. Great way to begin your time on the Commission! Our Shade Tree volunteers plant and maintain all curbside trees in the Borough. Other responsibilities include: removal and/or trimming of curbside and public trees, reporting tree related problems to other Borough agencies, maintaining Tree City USA status, conducting Arbor Day ceremonies, providing tips to the public on general tree maintenance, providing guidelines for dealing with tree damaged sidewalks and, managing the Affiliated memorial tree and plaque program.

Holiday Green-Up Help

The Garden Club invites all residents to join them for a morning devoted to greening-up the Borough's downtown for the holidays. On Saturday, November 16th, we are going to decorate the downtown hanging baskets and planters with fresh greens. If you would like to join them, they are meeting at the gazebo - at Centre and Chestnut - at 10:00 a.m. Dress warmly, and please bring work gloves and pruning shears if you have them. If you have greens you would like to contribute, they encourage you to bring them to the gazebo with you on Saturday morning. They hope to see you there!
