Spring Shade Tree Planting

Conshohocken Shade Tree Commission

The Conshohocken Shade Tree Commission would like to invite all borough residents interested in planting a tree on along the street in front of their home to participate in our Spring Bare-Root Tree Planting.  Since our Fall Planting was such a great success, we’ve decided to again work with TreeVitalize, to purchase a variety of trees for planting around the borough, which are suitable for planting beside sidewalks and under power lines.  We have a limited number of trees which are slightly larger – all trees are distributed on a first come first served basis.

The trees can be picked up on Saturday, March 27th from 9 until 11 AM at the Borough Yard at the unopened end of West 7th Ave. Please have a means of transporting the tree back to your home, and plan to plant it that day which will greatly increase the likelihood of survival.  We will also have a number of volunteers to help assist you with proper planting information.  There will also be printed literature available to every participant on the care and maintenance of your new tree.  All tree recipients will also be receiving two 2″X2″X8′ wooden stakes for each tree and a Gator bag to assist with tree watering.

Please email conshohockenshadetree@gmail.com if you are interested in either planting a tree in front of your home (or contact the Borough directly at 610-828-1092).  We are also actively recruiting volunteers to help with planting on Saturday, March 27th – please email us to sign up!

UPDATE: Read the Conshohocken Examiner’s news article about the spring planting.
