Woodbine Offering Free Tree Seedlings to Residents in MarchLast Edited:
Woodbine will be giving out free tree seedlings for residents under the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign for a sixth consecutive year.
On Saturday, March 23rd from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., residents can pick up five tree seedlings at the Gazebo on the bike path at the corner of Washington and DeHirsch, on a first come, first served basis.
Members of Woodbine’s Sustainable Jersey “Green Team” will be distributing the trees.
“Please take advantage of this offering, especially if you have lost trees due to weather or aging; this helps sustain the charm of our tree-lined community,” said Woodbine Mayor William Pikolycky. “If anyone has pictures of trees they’ve planted, Alec in Forestry would love to get pictures of trees established in the program to send to Arbor Day, and around the state, so please share these with the Borough.”
The seedlings come with instructions on how to store, care for, and plant them. Residents should plant the seedlings within two days of pick-up. Several varieties will be available.
The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign is to distribute 600,000 tree seedlings to New Jersey residents over the course of six years. It is a joint effort between the Borough of Woodbine, New Jersey Forest Service, New Jersey Soil Conservation Districts, Sustainable Jersey, Arbor Day Foundation, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Canon, and FedEx.
