The NJ Tree Foundation, in partnership with American Forests, is giving away 200 trees to residents of Asbury Park. A Tree For Every Yard will help increase the City’s tree canopy, beautify homes, and help create cool, shady yards. If you would like a free tree for your yard, please fill out this survey.
This giveaway is being held in partnership with the Asbury Park Environment & Shade Tree Commission. Trees must be picked up on Saturday November 8, 2014, between 9:00am – 12:00pm at Sunset Lake Park on Bond Street (Park is located at Sunset Ave. & Bond St.). All trees are 3 feet tall in a pot and will easily fit into any sized vehicle! There are 100 White fringe trees and 100 Black gum trees available through this giveaway. We will do our best to fill your first request, but please be prepared to accept either tree. Thank you for your participation in our effort to reforest Asbury Park!
