Restoring Some Shade To Shillington

Editor’s note:  Sounds like the good folks in Shillington did some research when selecting their curbside trees and chose appropriate trees with the help of a professional arborist, who is also a tree committee member.  Imagine that, Tom.

Despite sunshine and other signs of spring this week, residents of northern Shillington may have found themselves spending a little more time in the shade than usual.

That’s because the borough road crew planted 34 curbside trees on willing residents’ properties as part of an effort by the Shillington’s Tree Advisory Committee.  Volunteers will plant eight more trees today.

A state grant and some borough funds paid for the trees.  This is the committee’s second round of planting since it formed about 11/2 years ago.  The group planted 45 new trees in Shillington Park in October.

The committee now is focusing on different sections of the borough for each round of new trees it’s able to buy. Committee members go door to door to find homeowners willing to accept the trees.
