Memorial Park Tree Removal

This spring, a large Oak tree in Memorial Park fell during high winds. The Borough’s arborist was called in to the site, and determined that the tree was suffering from root rot, a fungus that infected the tree and caused the roots to become spongy. The roots, therefore, were not working to anchoring the tree into the ground. The arborist further informed the Borough that five other trees in Memorial Park were also suffering from extensive root rot, and could fall during high winds.

At the request of the Shade Tree Committee, a second arborist was brought in to assess the trees and provide a second opinion. It was confirmed that all five trees did have extensive root rot, which is a “cancer” for trees. Given the location of these trees next to busy roadways, the situation became a public safety concern. The trees are being removed to prevent them from falling onto the roadways.

Edgewood Borough Council values our urban forest, and is committed to its maintenance. Council will be working with the Shade Tree Committee to create a plan for replacement of the trees in Memorial Park. If you have any questions about Edgewood’s trees, please contact the Borough office at (412) 242-4824.

Please Help Us Keep Roads and Walkways Clear

As we dig out from the latest snow storm, Edgewood Borough wanted to remind our residents of a few tips to help us get through the winter.

Please remember to keep your sidewalks clear of snow and ice. This not only helps keep Edgewood a walkable community, but un-shoveled sidewalks look like no one is home and could be a tip to would-be burglars. Check in on your neighbors, and even offer to help shovel for someone who is unable to do it themselves.

Our public works crews are working hard to keep our streets salted and plowed. Please help them out by not shoveling snow back into the roadway. If you park on the street, please park as close as possible to the curb to allow us to treat the roads. Tuck in your side mirrors, too!

When walking your dogs, please continue to pick up after them even when there is snow.

Most importantly - stay warm and safe!

Borough Council

As a service to its Planning Partners, the Southwestern PA Commission (SPC) has developed a Road Safety Audit program as part of its Transportation Operations & Safety planning efforts. An RSA is a proactive process that provides recommendations which can be implemented in stages as time and resources permit.

The aim of the RSA is to answer the following questions:

  • What elements of the road may present a safety concern?

In a response to the Regent Square Civic Association's request, Edgewood Borough and Swissvale Borough actively participated in an RSA, which occurred in April 2014. The Boroughs provided all crash data, previous police studies of the area, and made employees/officials available for RSA key person interview.
