General operating support of community engagement in urban forestry activities and stewardship.
The NJ Tree Foundation was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1998 and began with a statewide, free tree giveaway program to celebrate Arbor Day. Since then, the NJ Tree Foundation has expanded to include programs that provide large free trees to Camden and Newark residents, statewide landscaping and tree planting services, green job training for men under parole supervision, public education about trees, memorial tree planting and maintenance, fruit tree plantings, and special projects based on community need.
In 17 years, the NJ Tree Foundation has planted more than 202,800 trees across the state and engaged hundreds of thousands of volunteers in the process. The mission of the NJ Tree Foundation demonstrates our dedication to planting trees in New Jersey's most underserved neighborhoods. Through tree planting, volunteerism, and partnerships, we assist numerous communities in improving their environments and quality of life.
