Free native tree seedlings will be available to Mendham Township residents on Saturday, April 29th as part of the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign. This program helps communities replace trees damaged or destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
From 10am to noon, residents will be able to pick up tree seedlings at the Town Hall parking lot. The bare root 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 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.
