Newark TreeKeepers is an educational component of the Renaissance Trees Program (RTP). Through the RTP, residents apply for trees and partner with the NJ Tree Foundation to reforest inner-city streets. Newark TreeKeepers promotes neighbors to learn proper care for those trees while connecting with other leaders in their own communities
Thank you to all of the Newark residents who attended our Newark TreeKeepers workshops this past summer! Since 2012 we have had 469 attendees at our workshops. This summer, 10 residents attended all four sessions, becoming Certified TreeKeepers! With these residents, Newark now has 74 Certified TreeKeepers since the program’s inception in 2012.
*Congratulations to our Certified Newark TreeKeepers – Summer Class 2016*
