SOS – Save Our Sycamore
Our town of Lansdowne, PA has a majestic Sycamore tree that is over 350 years old. It dates back to when the Declaration of Independence was signed and also during the William Penn era. This button represents when the sycamore sat on private property and was in danger of being cut down. Back in the 80’s the borough, along with private residents, worked together to save the tree. The town rallied together to ensure the tree would be here for future generations. The property was purchased by the borough and the tree now sits in the middle of a beautiful park. The tree is looked after and is admired by residents and visitors on a daily basis. The Sycamore Tree is also the symbol of the Borough of Lansdowne.
