Exceptional Trees of Springfield Township

Do you have an "exceptional tree" located on your property?  Exceptional trees are those that are either significant as a single tree or as a grouping of trees, and are unique because of their historical, ecological or aesthetic value. If you know of an exceptional tree that is located in Springfield Township, the Shade Tree Commission invites you to report the location, variety, size and estimated age of the tree via the Contact Form so that we can include it on a map of Exceptional Trees of Springfield Township [Google Map].
