Adopt a Tree Event in Upper Dublin

Due to COVID-19 the Shade Tree Commission will be handling our “Adopt a Tree Event” differently this year.  All one hundred and twelve (112) native species trees that are available for the adoption event can be reserved online through the Upper Dublin Parks and Recreation website at www.upperdublinrec.net.  You may reserve your choice of tree starting April 5, 2021 until Thursday April 22, 2021. Just click on Shade Tree, then adoption, and choose the tree of your choice. There are limits to each tree species and only 1 tree per Upper Dublin residence, business operators, and property owners for planting in Upper Dublin. PLEASE NOTE: walk-ins are NOT allowed on the day of pick up. You must reserve your tree online.          

Pick up date and time for your tree will be held on Saturday April 24, 2021 from 8:30 am to 10:30 am in the Upper Dublin Township parking lot, at 801 Loch Alsh Avenue. Please see your receipt for COVID-19 protocols.  Please wear your mask when speaking with a Shade Tree Commissioner when picking up your tree. The container trees will range in height from three (3) to five (5) feet.  You are responsible for transporting the tree to your property and for planting the tree. 

Although the trees will be offered without charge, in order for the Shade Tree Commission to continue this program donations are requested and greatly appreciated at the time of adoption.  The current cost per tree is about $14. A donation option is available when you reserve your trees. If you like to make an additional donation via check to the Shade Tree Commission directions will be included on your receipt.

Recently, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has been confirmed in Upper Dublin. We are also seeing the Spotted Lantern Fly.  Adopting a tree is the perfect opportunity to start replacing any dead or dying tree on your property.
