Share Article

The New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection announced its partnership with the nonprofit conservation group Arbor Day Foundation. Amazing Tree Service wants all New Jersey residents to know what they can do to help rebuild our fine landscape.

It has been over a year since Super Storm Sandy devastated New Jersey and surrounding states. The massive storm severely damaged over 340,000 New Jersey homes and caused $30 billion in losses for businesses. New Jersey residents and business owners knew the importance to rebuild after the storm, and have been rebuilding ever since.

More than 113,000 of New Jersey’s trees were recorded lost or fatally damaged, more went unrecorded. The New Jersey Community Tree Recovery Campaign is a partnership between the Arbor Day Foundation and the New Jersey Division of State Forestry Services. The campaign will focus on providing New Jersey communities, who lost their canopy during Sandy, with tree seedlings to be planted. The campaign will distribute 120,000 seedlings in more than 100 New Jersey towns, through 18 counties. The trees will be handed out to residents until April 19, and will distribute more than 30 different tree species. Click here to find out when and where your area will be distributing seedlings.

This is also a relief to the many trees that have been damaged throughout this year’s harsh winter. Damage to trees occurs when weather conditions are severe, prolonged, or there are sudden changes in temperature. Salts that are used in deicing pavement can cause damage to trees as well. The symptoms of salt damage appear in the early spring and summer, and include browning of leaves and branch die back.

Amazing Tree Service, a New Jersey tree service company, has been helping New Jersey residents recover after the devastating effects of Super Storm Sandy. They have worked extensively with state, federal and environmental agencies in an effort to replenish New Jersey’s diverse and beautiful tree canopy.

Amazing Tree Service wants all New Jersey residents to know of the New Jersey Community Tree Recovery Campaign. If you are concerned about any of the trees on your property, call Amazing Tree Service for a free tree service estimate.
