National NeighborWoods® Month
Southampton's Shade Tree Commission
organized the town’s first
celebration in 2015. A local Certified Tree Expert and Arborist gave a 45 minute presentation, followed by a 45 minute outdoor demonstration on root collar disorders in the landscape in October 2015. In addition, handouts on tree care and tree-tublings were distributed to attendees.
A publicity campaign for tree care and community forestry was initiated in 2013 by the Commission. Tree planting and education events have helped draw attention to Southampton's Community Forestry Program. A Shade Tree Commission webpage, with a wealth of information prepared by the Commission, was launched on the Township's website.
