Free Tree Seedlings April 24

Free Seedlings-640

In celebration of Earth Day, the Hazlet Environmental Commission volunteers will be handing out bundles containing 5 tree seedlings on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 11 am to 2 pm.

Pick up your free bundle at the township's brand new Environmental Building, 399 Middle Road (near Raritan High School). 

There are 100 bundles available. First come, first served. One per household. No pre-registration required.  

Each bundle includes one each of Cornelian Cherry, Red Cedar, Bayberry, Sycamore and Beach Plum.

The New Jersey Forest Nursery provided these species to Hazlet Township, because of available stock, there are what grows best in our environment. Sycamore is a great street tree, red cedar is a native juniper, Cornelian Cherry is a spring-blooming dogwood specimen tree, and bayberry and beach plum are commonly found on dunes and in other coastal environments. 

The seedlings are supplied by the New Jersey Forest Nursery in Jackson, NJ. View the 2021 NJ DEP nursery catalog for more details. (PDF)

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday and showing off our new Environmental Building at Natco Park. Kindly take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
