Plant and Care for Trees

The Shade Tree Commission stands ready to assist you in selecting, planting and caring for trees. We maintain a series of plant lists to guide the process.

Established programs include
  • Trees for Abington-  for many years, Abington Township has offered  bare root trees  for purchase by residents and business owners as part to the Pennsylvania Tree Vitalize.  We are currently offering bare root trees for a subsidized price of $25 per tree, for pick up on November 14, 2015.  Quantities are limited.  Please contact us at if you are interested in purchasing a tree.
  • The Green Program-   The Green Program is a PEC award-winning community tree planting program.  Contributions from individuals or groups are accepted for the purpose of installing plant material in parks and open spaces.  For details see the Abington Township Environmental Advisory site at
In addition to the above programs,  residents are encouraged to direct questions about trees to the STC at
