Evergreens of Ferguson Township

How evergreens enhance your property and the quality of life in Ferguson Township:

  • Great as wind breaks if planted on the north and west sides of a property, reducing heating costs
  • Provide food and cover for many species of birds and wildlife
  • Can be used as a privacy screen
  • Can be used to dampen traffic noise and other unwanted noise
  • Improve air quality
  • Provide shade in the summer
  • Help control/reduce storm water run off
  • Raise property values
  • Provide color to the winter landscape

Ferguson Township will continue to add photos of snow-topped evergreens to our Evergreens in Ferguson Township Photo Gallery.

Our residents have graciously submitted their photos to share in our gallery. Our thanks to the following:

Darlene Chivers, who serves on the Ferguson Township Tree Commission, shot most of her pics on Deepwood Drive in Pine Grove Mills. She also photographed snow-topped rhododendrons.

Jeremie Thompson, who submitted photos from the Copper Beech Townhomes on West Aaron Drive and Park Forest Village.

Nicole Griffith Harris, who photographed the evergreens behind Birch Court, bordering Haymarket Park.

Cheryl Keller Capone, who shared her photo (above) of snow-draped white pines in Saybrook.

Fran Jones, who photographed her hemlocks behind Westover Drive.

If you'd like us to photograph your evergreens, or have taken evergreen photographs you'd like to share, please email the Township Arborist, Lance King at
