When I first moved to Plainfield, after living in Newark for 10 years, someone mentioned the Shade Tree Commission to me and I laughed and thought “a what commission?”
Well, I am big enough person to admit that I quickly learned how ridiculous my snickering was – not only because of the tremendous amount of work that the commission does, but even more so because the beautiful old trees were one of the many attributes that sold me on Plainfield and capture my attention with each season.
With that said, I want to bring attention to an event that is sponsored by the Plainfield Shade Tree Commission that I think people will find very informative and helpful in caring for one of our greatest city assets:
Event: Tree Keepers Workshop (By NJ Tree Foundation)
What: An opportunity to learn about caring for trees on your property, in your neighborhood and speak with your Shade Tree Commissioners
When: Monday, July 23rd – 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
