The New Jersey Tree Recovery Campaign is partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation for the 6th year in a row to distribute free trees to Monmouth and Ocean County residents.

Here's how it works:

  • Each NJ resident will receive five one to two-foot tall bare root tree seedlings in a bundle.
  • Need more than five trees? Visit www.forestnursery.nj.gov to buy 98 tube seedlings for $35 or 50 Seedlings for Reforestation starting at $18!
  • Species distributed depend on what grows best in that area. Municipalities in the northern part of the state may receive sugar maple or black oak trees, while towns in the south may receive Atlantic white cedar or other species adapted to this region. Seedlings distributed to shore towns may include bayberry or beach plum, shrubs commonly found on dunes and in other coastal environments.
