Free Trees to Celebrate Arbor Day!
Let’s plant 15,000 trees for 15 years
For the 15th consecutive year, the New Jersey Tree Foundation is offering free two-year-old trees (1’ – 2’ tall) to celebrate Arbor Day occurring April 26, 2013. A variety of evergreen and deciduous trees are available. Schools, local governments, tree groups, non-profit organizations, scout groups, and any volunteer organization may apply for the free trees. All planting must occur on public lands, be done by volunteers and maintained for two years.
There are many ways the trees can be used to beautify your neighborhood. Trees can be planted in a vacant lot to create an urban forest, planted as a windbreak for a community garden or at a school, planted in a nursery, or trees can be planted randomly throughout a park or cemetery.
Trees available for Spring 2013: White pine, Bald cypress, Green ash, Northern red oak, Redbud and buttonbush (shrub).
If you are a NEW group applying for trees, you will need to attend ONE tree Training Session in March 2013. Training Session Schedule: Training Schedule
