West Goshen Sustainability Logo_03.2021

In recognition of Arbor Day, West Goshen Township will undertake a tree planting project in Hamlet Crest Park.  This project was guided by the Sustainability Advisory Committee and approved by the Board of Supervisors on February 7, 2023.  As West Goshen Township has been is a member of the "Tree City" program through the Arbor Day Foundation, this project is part of our requirements in that program.  The goals of this project are:

  • Educate the public on the benefits of planting trees
  • Build community with township residents, government, and businesses 
  • Reduce turf grass mowing
  • Teach “mulching” technique to reduce turf areas, which can be applied at resident homes
  • Plant the first phase of a reforestation (~120 plants; ~40 over story trees, ~40 understory trees and `40 shrubs)
  •  Increase biodiversity in the park by expanding the woodland habitat 
  • Set the stage for an ongoing township-wide project of joining the Homegrown National Park movement (see for more detail)

Additional information is available in the project document linked below.
