WOODBINE — The Borough of Woodbine has applied to receive 250 seedling trees under the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign for a fourth consecutive year.
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.
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.
“We are looking forward to receiving further information on the species of trees that will be available. The projected distribution date for Woodbine residents will be April 1, once we receive final details from the Forestry Department,” noted Mayor Pikolycky. “The State has again selected Woodbine to be the place where the trees will be dropped off for the other municipalities’ Public Works Departments to pick-up to distribute at their local events. All sixteen municipalities in the County are eligible to apply and have received information from the New Jersey Forestry Department. The deadline for application by municipalities is February 28.”
