Springfield Plans to Use PECO Green Region Grant for Trees

Springfield Township PA street trees and residents to benefit from PECO Green Region Grant.

Springfield PA TreesIn May, PECO awarded $150,000 in PECO Green Region grants to 20 municipalities in the greater Philadelphia area.  These grants have been awarded yearly since 2004 to provide for projects for open space preservation, conservation, and improvements.  PECO works with its parent, Exelon Corp, the Natural Lands Trust, and conservation organizations to review applications and decide grant recipients.

This year five of those recipients were located in Delaware County.  Thornbury, Folcroft, Haverford, Concord, and Springfield each received grants this year.  The grants varied between $5,000 and $10,000 per municipality and will cover an array of projects.

Springfield Township plans to use its funds to purchase 200 bare root trees.  Since 1958, Springfield's Shade Tree Commission has worked with residents to maintain shade trees and street trees in the township.  Residents can apply to the township for these trees.  Participating residents would be required to attend a presentation on the tree's proper care and maintenance.

Once again, local government and corporations are working together to improve our environment .
