Mahwah Reinvesting in Trees
Trees are a symbol of growth and the future. Mahwah’s Environmental Commission has received a grant from the NJ Tree Recovery Campaign to distribute 2,000 trees to Mahwah residents at no cost. The trees are 1’ – 3’ seedlings of varieties native to Northern NJ (maples, oaks, pines, dogwoods, etc). Residents can take up to 5 trees to plant in their yards to replace trees lost by storms or to reinvest in their surroundings. In addition to their scenic beauty, trees are nature’s way to provide oxygen, absorb runoff and provide shade. The trees can be picked up at the Mahwah Town Hall Upper Parking Lot between 10 AM – 2 PM on Saturday, April 22, 2017 (rain or shine).
