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.Please follow COVID19 recommendations when picking up the tree seedlings.The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign to distribute over 600,000 tree seedlings to New Jersey residents over the course of seven years was met in 2019.   With natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy, and the damage caused by several new invasive insects to New Jersey, our state needs more new tree seedlings than ever before.  Therefore, the campaign is moving into its 7th year.   The program is a joint effort between Franklin TownshipNew Jersey Forest Service, New Jersey Soil Conservation Districts, Arbor Day Foundation, iCIMS, FedEx, State Farm and International Paper.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.For a list of all distribution locations across the state, visit www.forestry.nj.gov or www.facebook.com/newjerseyforests.If you have any questions please contact Christine Burke, Municipal Clerk at 908-735-5215 Ext. 2 202 sidney road, Pittstown, New Jersey 08867
