All tree planting events are held rain or shine.  Tree plantings are typically finished by noon.  Please wear sturdy shoes and clothes that you do not mind getting dirty!  The New Jersey Tree Foundation will provide tools, gloves, and water for the tree plantings.  All tree plantings will have a planting demonstration at the beginning of the event and will be supervised by NJ Tree Foundation staff.

To volunteer, get directions or for further information contact Shannon Buckley, Project Coordinator, at 609-439-1755 or at njtf_sbuckley@yahoo.com or visit our website at www.newjerseytreefoundation.org.
