The STC plants trees around the borough annual, usually in the fall. Trees can also be purchased by individual owners at the Borough’s wholesale cost for placement on private property. As selection is available from the STC. Contact any member for more information.
Care For Trees:
Trees on Borough property are the responsibility of the STC. Those along the borough right of way are property of the borough. But, by ordinance, they are to be cared for by the adjacent property owner and any removal must be approved in writing by the STC.
The STC has a biologist and a graduate forester at the disposal of residents in order to provide advise on tree matters. They should be consulted before questionable tree removals.
Each year, usually the last Friday in April, the STC holds an Arbor Day celebration which is publicized in a local paper.
Tree City USA:
The Langhorne Borough Shade Tree Commission has qualified many times for the Tree City USA award presented by the National Arbor Day Foundation.
