Whitpain Again Named Tree City

Thu, Apr 16th, 2015

The Arbor Day Foundation has named Whitpain a 2014 Tree City, the 20th consecutive year that the Township has received the honor.

The Tree City designation recognizes the Township's commitment to urban forest management. The Township also received a Tree City USA Growth Award for demonstrating environmental improvement and a higher level of tree care.

"Everyone benefits when elected officials, volunteers and committed citizens in communities like Whitpain make smart investments in urban forests," said Matt Harris, chief executive of the Arbor Day Foundation.

Supervisors Chairman Fred Conner said tree care remains a priority for the Township and highlighted the efforts of the Shade Tree Commission.

"In words and in actions, our Shade Tree Commission has been a advocate for the environment in Whitpain and we can't thank them enough," he said.
