Manalapan Township and the Manalapan Township Shade Tree Committee are happy to announce they will be providing Free Tree Seedlings to Residents in Manalapan Township through the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign

Free tree seedlings will be available to Manalapan residents on April 14th as part of the New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign. This program helps communities replace trees damaged or destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.

From 9:30am to 11am on Saturday, April 14th, residents will be able to pick up tree seedlings at the Manalapan Recreation Center, Kuschick Pavilion. 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.

The goal of the Tree Recovery Campaign is to distribute over 500,000 tree seedlings to New Jersey residents over the course of the next five years. It is a joint effort between Manalapan Township, New Jersey State Forest Service, New Jersey Soil Conservation Districts, Sustainable Jersey, Arbor Day Foundation, Brothers International, BJ’s Wholesale Club, Canon, and FedEx.
