The City of New Brunswick, a designated Tree City USA for 34 years, continued its Arbor Day tradition on April 25th with the planting of two young trees on the grounds of McKinley Community School.
Mayor Cahill, City Councilman John Anderson and New Brunswick Public Schools Superintendent Aubrey Johnson joined the McKinley community for a special celebration of our trees.
Two were planted: a Flowering White Dogwood tree and a Red Oak tree, two species commonly found throughout New Jersey. Northern Red Oak trees are the State Tree for New Jersey.
The City of New Brunswick has been a Tree City USA for 34 years, named so by the National Arbor Day Foundation for its commitment to the care, maintenance and prosperity of its trees.
The City’s annual Arbor Day celebration is hosted at different elementary schools each year and features the planting of young trees on school and public properties Citywide.
