Over 1000 trees planted in Marple

The Marple Tree Commission (MTC) has facilitated the planting of more than 1000 trees in town over the past 16 years. About 500 are located in our eight Township parks, along roadsides and on school campuses and are maintained by MTC volunteers. Another 500 or so through our Re-Leaf Marple Program, are located on residential properties. Tree Commission volunteers help participating residents choose an appropriate site and demonstrate correct planting of young trees while homeowners commit to caring for them over the seasons.
