The township came together to plant new trees.

Residents of a township in Bucks County recently worked together to plant a large amount of new trees in the area.

Bensalem Township, along with volunteers from the Bucks County Conservation District and their own Public Works Department, recently planted trees around the area. Mayor Joseph DiGirolamo was present and helping volunteers.

“These saplings were planted as a secondary phase of the project on township property located near the Poquessing Creek in Nottingham Village,” the township said online.

“The goal is to compliment the larger shade trees planted last spring with smaller trees, that will provide shade and eventually kill the existing grass and make this parcel more in tune with nature, with no maintenance.”

On May 13, the Friends of Poquessing Watershed of Philadelphia and Bucks County planted 150 trees to the area of Faust Elementary School to populate the area. The trees planted ranged from 18″ to 36″ tall.
