Arbor Day in Sayreville 2010
Sayreville’s Shade Tree Commission conducted tree plantings with the Boy Scouts and Shade Tree Chairman Rich Herban conducted an educational seminar.

Borough of Sayreville is awarded
Tree City USA

The Tree City USA program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters, provides direction, technical assistance, public attention, and national recognition for urban and community forestry programs in thousands of towns and cities that more than 135 million Americans call home.

The many benefits of being a Tree City include creating a framework for action, education, a positive public image, and citizen pride.

The award was presented to Sayreville during New Jersey’s 61st Arbor Day Celebration held in Newark on April 30, 2010.
