3/16/2021 - “New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign Provides Free Tree Seedlings to Residents in Deptford Township”, May 1, 2021 - 8:00AM - 11:00AM

Deptford Township Mayor Paul Medany, Township Council and the Deptford Environmental Commission are pleased to announce the “New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign Provides Free Tree Seedlings to Residents in Deptford Township

From 8:00AM to 11:00AM on May 1, 2021, residents will be able to pick up tree seedlings at the Municipal Building, 1011 Cooper Street, Deptford. 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.

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.
