Trees

The shade trees located within the planting strip areas are owned and maintained by the Borough. Trimming or altering of Borough trees is prohibited by anyone other than the Public Works Department. Should a Borough tree located on your property require maintenance, please contact the Public Works Department. Property owners are responsible for maintaining and trimming trees located in rear yards or along alleys.  Property owners who are interested in having trees planted within their yard may contact the Public Works Department at 610-374-8605.

Fallen branches from Borough trees may be placed within the planting strip area for Public Works staff to collect. 

Christmas Trees are collected by the Public Works staff beginning the day after Christmas and generally continuing through the end of January. Trees must be placed within the planting strip area for collection. Please remember to remove all lights, ornaments and stand prior to placing out for collection.
