The Asplundh Tree Expert Co., in honor of National Arbor Day sponsored a service project in conjunction with PECO Vegetation Management at Smith Memorial Playground in East Fairmount Park.

Two Asplundh climbing crews removed two large, dead and dying trees from the Smith Playground while a team of 13 Asplundh and PECO employees did spring cleanup and planting work.

In addition, two weeping cherry trees, donated by Lentzcaping, Inc. of Warrington, Pennsylvania, were planted to replace two that had succumbed to last summer’s drought and other stresses.

Asplundh Tree Expert Co. is a family-owned and managed company headquartered just outside of Philadelphia in Willow Grove, PA. It primarily provides vegetation management and utility infrastructure services to a wide range of utilities and municipalities. The Asplundh family of companies employs about 32,000 men and women throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
