Ridgewood Residents Can Put Down Roots with Free Tree Seedlings

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, Free tree seedlings will be available to Ridgewood residents on Saturday, May 1 as part of the NJ Forest Service’s New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign.

In celebration of Arbor Day and in an ongoing effort to re-tree and sustain Ridgewood trees, the Ridgewood Department of Parks and Recreation Shade Tree Division and the Ridgewood Shade Tree Commission are supporting this distribution.

From 10 am to 12 noon residents will be able to pick up seedlings at the Graydon Parking Lot.  Registration is required as supply is limited and distribution will be contactless.  Information on proper planting and care will be provided.  Residents should plant the seedlings with two days after pick-up in order to prevent the roots from drying out.

To register for seedlings and further information, contact Carolyn Jacoby, pearlaama@gmail.com.
