New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign Provides Free Seedlings
To Residents in Mendham Borough
Free Tree seedlings will be available to Mendham Borough residents as a part of the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign.
Residents are able to pick up tree seedlings starting May 5th from 9am-2pm at the Mendham Borough Department of Public Works, 37 Ironia Rd.
Seedlings, available on a first come first served basis, also come with instructions on how to store, care for, and plant them. The guides help residents chose 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. The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign is to distribute over 500,000 tree seedlings to NJ residents over the course of the campaign. 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.
