Give us a call………….
Ever hear of the term “community forestry?” Like to find out what it is or learn more about it? Interested in doing an interview or writing a story? Many people throughout our region are managing or beginning to actively manage the trees in their boroughs and townships, along their streets and in our parks. These trees are no longer an afterthought but are widely recognized for their value in city beautification and aesthetics; helping reduce water runoff; improving the air quality in towns; and a variety of other social, natural resource and economic benefits.
Towns like State College, Huntingdon, Holidaysburg and Lewistown, among others, have met criteria for the national designation of Tree City USA. Places like Allensville, Mifflin, Harris Township, and Altoona, are active with tree- and park-related projects in their communities.
