Planting and Caring for Trees
The Shade Tree Commission stands ready to assist you in selecting, planting and caring for trees. We maintain a series of plant lists to guide the process.
- Abington Township List of Recommended Plants (updated 8-4-2015)
- List of Recommended Trees and Shrubs for Homeowners- tailored list for use by homeowners
Throughout the year, we rely on volunteers of all ages and abilities to water, mulch and prune newly-planted trees, and to tend our forests
- Please consider "adopting" one or more trees. We especially need help with watering until we get to cooler days. Many hands make light work! To volunteer, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- In 2015 we identified forest stewardship of the Ardsley Wildlife Sanctuary as a strategic priority.
Are you too busy to plant? We can help. This also makes a perfect gift!
