Shade Tree Commission Beautifies Library

Thu, Dec 11th, 2014

The Township's Shade Tree Commission recently completed a beautification project at the Wissahickon Valley Public Library Blue Bell Branch.

As part of the project, 13 new trees were planted in the library's parking lot and 4 dead trees were removed.

"This was a rewarding project," said Shade Tree Commission Member Andy Meehan. "We were able to partner with the library to improve the aesthetic appeal of their parking lot by planting native tree species that are ideally suited to our climate."

This project was one of many that the volunteer commission completes throughout the year. They also sponsor a tree giveaway in the spring for Township residents and participate in the Township's annual Earth Day festivities to name a few.
