Scranton to Replace 20 Trees Downtown

    February 27, 2019

    Thanks to funding from the Shade Tree Commission, the City of Scranton will be planting 20 new trees of different species to replace the dead or dying ones that are currently lining the city streets. The trees that are being replaced were planted in the 1990s. According to landscape architect Tom McLane, the average life of an urban street tree is seven years. The new trees will offer a better aesthetic in the downtown area as well as environmental benefits.
