There are a variety of 1-2 feet tall seedlings available on a first-come, first-served basis, including Redbuds, Dogwoods, various Oak varieties, Ironwood/Hophornbeams, Basswood/Lindens and the evergreens Norway Spruce and Douglas Firs, among others. Help keep East Rutherford green and beautiful!

Planting instructions are provided, but remember to research your species and consider the size of the tree when fully grown so that you plant in the right place, being mindful of overhead and underground utility lines and proximity to structures. Call 811 before digging!
