The Hillsdale Council, Hillsdale DPW and SiteOne Landscape Supply teamed together to replace the Centennial Tree that was lost last year from Dutch Elm disease. A new elm was planted in a different area of Veterans Park, located in the town center, during a week of Arbor Day plantings around the town.
The Hillsdale Council and Hillsdale Environmental Commission also arranged for the planting of four trees for Arbor Day celebrations at Hillsdale schools. All trees were graciously donated by SiteOne Landscape Supply of Mahwah,NJ.
Meadowbrook School received a Red Oak, George White a Pink Dogwood and St. John’s Academy planted a Purple Plum.
Pictured below is the Eastern White Pine planted at Ann Blanche Smith School where Councilman Frank Pizzella helped officiate the dedication with an inspiring speech.
