Tree Leaves

Tree Trimming

The Township Public Works Department will be tree and shrub trimming. Tree limbs or shrubs, which hang into the right-of-way or are in the area beyond the edges of the road and are less than 14 feet in height, become a hazard and cause damage to buses and trucks, and also interferes with proper snow removal.  The Public Works Department would greatly appreciate if all residents would trim their trees in this area.  They will also be trimming trees/shrubs that restrict vision at intersections.  The workers will try and hand out letters to give advance notice if they will be in your area.  They cannot be held responsible if there is any damage to your trees.  If you are concerned with the health of your trees, please either trim them yourselves or hire a qualified tree arborist.

Please be aware that our township ordinance prohibits parking on streets.  This is especially important during the winter months when our plows need to have access.  This will be enforced.

Please contact Rick Huffman, our Public Works Director at the Township maintenance bldg. at 724-727-9669 if you need further information or if you have any other road-related concerns.  Information you may have is always appreciated.
