About the Wenonah STC

The Wenonah Shade Tree Commission is a group of volunteers dedicated to caring for and preserving trees. Members are appointed by the Mayor. The Commission oversees tree maintenance and trimming, removal of dead trees and the planting of new trees. Our oversight is limited to trees in the clear zone defined as the area between the sidewalk and the curb or if there is no sidewalk then up to 12 feet onto the property. The Clear zone is also where your water and sewer utilities run through as well as gas lines.

Residents who wish to either trim or remove any tree within the clear zone as defined above must contact the Shade Tree Commission in order to receive a “no cost (free)” permit. A member will come to your home and assess the trees health and determine the best path forward.

Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of February-May, August, September & November at the Jack C. Sheppard, Sr. Community Center at 7:30 P.M. No meetings are held in January, June, July, October & December.

For questions regarding a tree or for volunteer opportunities, please contact Gary Odenbrett at 856-468-2627 or gnoden@comcast.net.
