Tree Committee Accomplishments for 2016

As Henlopen Acres residents and property owners are aware, the Town takes great pride in our extensive and diverse tree canopy.  We have a very active and passionate Tree Committee who has had a productive 2016.  Some of their accomplishments are:

  • A Honey Locust donated by the State Forest Service was planted at the Marina in observance of Arbor Day
  • The Town received a grant from the State Forest Service to plant 12 new trees
  • The Town has retained a consulting Arborist-Cypress Tree Care- who is helping create a long term Tree Management Plan
  • The Brown family at 20 Rolling Road donated 20 Loblolly pines that were transplanted in Town
  • Cypress Tree Care removed 11 dead trees and pruned 7 hazardous trees
  • Cisco Tree Service removed 1 dead tree and pruned 4 hazardous trees
  • The Cronin family at 94 Tidewaters will be donating hardwood trees to be transplanted this Spring
