1,000 free tree seedlings were distributed to Morris Township residents this past weekend as part of the New Jersey Forest Service’s New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign. The seedling distribution was a joint effort of the Morris Township Environmental Commission and the Department of Parks and Recreation. This was the third year that the Township participated in the Tree Recovery Program.
 
The distribution effort was organized by the Tractenberg Family (pictured above) of Mill Road in the Fairchild neighborhood of the Township.  Steve Tractenberg, a member of both the Environmental Commission and the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, was joined by his wife Heather Ayers, Mother-in-Law Deb Ayers, daughter Lily Tractenberg and staff of the Parks and Recreation Department in distributing the tree seedlings along with planting instructions.  Over 200 Township families received trees at the distribution on Saturday, May 30 th .
 
Many thanks to the Morris Township Police Department for their assistance in traffic control for this very popular activity.
 
Residents received a selection of Mockernut Hickory, Hackberry, Eastern Red Bud, Kousa Dogwood, and Persimmon tree seedlings, all provided from the New Jersey Forest Service Tree Nursery in Jackson, NJ.
 
We look forward to seeing many new neighborhood trees providing shade and other environmental benefits from these seedlings.
