Property owners are responsible for maintenance and/or removal of curbside trees. Evesham DPW will remove a curbside tree only if it is considered a danger to public safety, such as a dead tree. If a tree is lifting the sidewalk and creating a trip hazard, the township offers a Shared Service Program whereas the township will incur the cost of removing the tree, stump and affected roots if the property owner agrees to replace the sidewalk with new concrete.
See the following for the Shade Tree Complaint form.
Call Public Works at (856) 983-2798 to learn more about the Shared Service Program for tree removal and sidewalk replacement.

There are many ways you can keep your streets and sidewalks safe and clear during snow removal by following these steps:
Plowing operations generally begin when snow accumulations reaches two inches, or sooner if the roads are determined by the police department to be hazardous.
There are many miles of streets and many cul-de-sacs within the Township. Typically, the large snowplow trucks will concentrate on the major streets within each particular route. Once the main or primary streets have been plowed, the large truck will move to the secondary streets within each scheduled area. Public Works keeps route layouts logical and efficient to reduce travel times and to save fuel.
Typically, courts with center islands take approximately 15-20 minutes to be cleared. Cul-de-sacs that do not have islands in the center are the most time consuming, usually taking approximately 30 minutes to plow. In the event of a heavy snow fall, a front end loader may assist in the snow removal process in the cul-de-sacs. Another factor that affects the plow's arrival in a specific area has to do with equipment failures or breakdowns. If a truck is out of service for any period of time, it can adversely affect snow removal within an area.
Public Works makes every effort to reduce the potential for breakdowns; however, breakdowns still occur. It should take each truck approximately six to eight hours to pass through their entire route once. If the snow is a heavy and sustained storm, the truck may have to make many passes in an effort to keep roads passable.
Although crews do not place snow in front of driveways on purpose, there is no practical way for the snow plow operator to cut off the window of snow when crossing a driveway. This problem is especially acute in cul-de-sacs because of the confined space. Cul-de-sacs require that all of the snow that is on the roadway within that confined space be placed along the outside of the circle. The problem is compounded by the fact that each homeowner then must clear their driveway, which places large piles on the corners of the drives.
One thing residents can do to reduce the amount of snow that is plowed in front of their driveway is to place as much of the snow as possible to the right side of their drive, as they face the street. This reduces the chance of snow previously removed from the driveway being pushed back onto a resident's drive. (This suggestion may not work in cul-de-sacs that have driveway openings placed close together.)
Snow that accumulates across the side road at the street corner needs to be pushed back onto the corner. This is done to properly clear the street radius and allow cars to turn. The snowplow driver typically pushes snow back onto the corner in the direction the truck is traveling. This is why a particular corner may get more snow on it than another. It is not practical to require that the large snowplow truck attempt to maneuver around the intersection to equally distribute snow on opposite corners. This is difficult to accomplish and is also time-consuming during significant snowstorms.
Snow piled at the street corner is of particular concern where there may be school bus stops. If there is an accumulation of snow at the corner of a bus stop, children may have to move up the street in order to board the school bus. Please instruct children not to climb on the piles that have accumulated at the corners.
Every effort will be made to take unique street circumstances into account. However, it is extremely difficult and time consuiming to push at a reverse angle, particularly around turns, circles and cul-de-sacs. Trucks are not built to be articulated into an angle that would allow this type of plowing, and centrifugal force causes the snow to move off of the plow toward the outside of the turn. Public Work's goal in clearing all streets is to maintain as much of the normal pavement width as possible, while at the same time, allowing acceptable access to the mailboxes by the postal carriers.
If a hazard is spotted, please call the Evesham Public Works Department at (856) 983-2798. If this occurs after 3:30 p.m. or on a weekend, members of the public should call the Evesham Police Department non-emergency number at (856) 983-1111. Please do not leave messages at the municipal building.
It will always be most effective to resolve an issue by using the phone numbers above. A message left with a department other than Public Works or the Police Dispatch may create duplication of effort or go unanswered for a period depending on conditions.
