Freehold Borough, Township Named Tree Cities by Arbor Day Foundation

Freehold Borough has been a Tree city for 15 years, Freehold Township for 31 years.

Freehold Borough and Freehold Township have been named Tree Cities by the Arbor Day Foundation, an honor both towns have become accustomed to over the years.

There are 180 Tree Cities in New Jersey, including Colts Neck, Marlboro and Manalapan.

Freehold Borough is running on its fifteenth year while Freehold Township has been a designated Tree City for the last 31 years.

There are four standards to becoming a Tree City. The town must have a Tree Board of Department, a tree care ordinance, a community forestry program with a budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance or proclamation.

Both Borough and Township have active Shade Tree Committees, responsible for maintaining and growing town-owned conservation and/or landscape easements.
