Luyber Reforestation Project

In order to compensate for lost trees in our Township, it is required that developers replace the trees by planting new, similar sized trees, or by contributing to the Township’s “Tree Fund.” The fund is now being used to reforest the Luyber Property with approximately 1,900 new native trees. This reforestation will have a significant impact on the stormwater management, air cleanliness, and overall quality of life for surrounding neighborhoods and the municipality. The area will be protected from deer by fencing and will be maintained for a two-year period to ensure the health and establishment of the forested area. The current walking path will remain, and an additional portion of path will be constructed in the future.
