NJ Tree Recovery Campaign Provides Free Tree Seedlings to Woodbine Residents

By Press Release

WOODBINE — The Borough of Woodbine will be receiving 1- to 4-foot seedling trees under the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign for a fourth consecutive year. Members of Woodbine’s Sustainable Jersey “Green Team” will again be distributing the trees.
Free tree seedlings will be available to Woodbine residents April 7 as part of the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., April 7, residents will be able to pick up tree seedlings at the Gazebo on the bike path at the corner of Washington and DeHirsch, on a first come, first serve basis, with an initial offering of five trees per resident.
Seedlings also come with instructions on how to store, care for, and plant them. The guides help residents choose the right place on a property to plant a tree while keeping in mind the tree’s full-grown size in the future. Residents should plant the seedlings within two days after pick-up in order to prevent the roots from drying out. Several varieties will be available.
The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign is to distribute over 500,000 tree seedlings to New Jersey residents over the course of five years. It is a joint effort between the Borough, the New Jersey State Forestry Services, New Jersey Soil Conservation Districts, Sustainable Jersey, the Arbor Day Foundation, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Canon, and Fed Ex.
When properly planted and maintained, trees can be assets to a community. They improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood or business district, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants, and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.
Mayor Pikolycky adds, “Looking forward to another successful campaign with better weather than we have had some years (especially given the number of March nor’easters this year), we again thank our Sustainable Jersey Green Team for their fifth year of facilitating this giveaway.”
If you have any questions, please contact Borough Hall at 609-861-2153.
