Tree Leaves

Tree Trimming

The Public Works Department will continue tree trimming as necessary. There is also an outside contractor doing some of the work. Tree limbs or shrubs which hang approximately 3 ‘-5’ off asphalt edge (except in yard areas around houses), approximately 2’-3’ off asphalt edge in yard areas around houses and low hanging limbs up to approximately 16’-18’ high, become a hazard and cause damage to buses and trucks and also interferes with proper snow removal.  We would greatly appreciate if all residents trim their trees in this area.


We 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.


If you need any further information, please contact Rick Huffman at the township maintenance building at 724-727-9669.  Also, if you have any other road related concerns, please don’t hesitate to call.  We always appreciate the information.

We will also be trimming shrubs and trees that restrict vision at intersections.

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