Tree Planting 2013



The Hillsdale Environmental Commission organized the plantings as part of an ongoing effort to increase the quality of life in the borough.
Hillsdale recently planted 60 new trees as part of an ongoing effort to increase the quality of life in the borough.
The plantings included 23 Norway spruce evergreens along Broadway to screen the DPW yard, 17 plum, pear, hackberry, cherry,  pin oak, green sugar maples, zelkovas and red oak trees at Centennial Field, Beechwood Park and Memorial Field and 20 red oaks and sugar maples along Hillsdale Avenue and Broadway, according to Stefanie Breuer of the Hillsdale Environmental Commission.
The trees were planted over the course of three days by KC Landscaping of Fort Lee and the borough.
Money for the project came from the Borough Tree Bank and the commission plans to plant more trees in other areas of town as more funds become available, according to Breuer.

The Hillsdale Mayor and Council have declared Saturday, May 11 as Hillsdale’s town-wide clean up day. The clean-up will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in selected areas throughout the town.

Volunteers are asked to meet in Fireman’s Memorial Park in the center of town. Areas to be cleaned will be assigned and supplies will be provided. All collected garbage will be divided into recyclable and non-recyclable items. Gloves, long sleeves, long pants and appropriate footwear are recommended. Adult supervision is required for participation of those under 16 years of age. Pre-registration via email is appreciated.
