Forests & Trees

Forested areas and trees are one of Hopewell Township's most precious natural resources. The Environmental Commission is collecting information on significant trees within our Township to identify and celebrate those of special significance. Nominated trees and their photographs will be added to our significant tree inventory, which is Appendix 4 to the Environmental Resources Inventory (PDF). We invite residents of all ages to submit nominations for their favorite tree. Additional information and nomination forms are available on this page.

Note: The Environmental Commission distributed the Environmental Commission Newsletter (PDF) to property owners within that portion of Hopewell Township known as the Burden Hill Forest to ensure that they are aware of the special importance of this forested area to the Township's ecology, groundwater, and agricultural industry.
