200 New Street Trees Coming To HobokenTweet
Hoboken, NJ - Friday, April 15th, 2011
As many as 200 new street trees will be planted this year to fill all empty tree pits in Hoboken. Today, students from the Calabro school joined Jason Scott, owner of The Taco Truck, Mayor Dawn Zimmer, and representatives from the Quality of Life Coalition and Shade Tree Commission, to help plant the first of 50 trees donated as part of the “Tacos for Trees” program. The Taco Truck is working with the Quality of Life Coalition and donating 10% of their profits in April to purchase 50 trees. The City is matching that with an additional 50 trees, and�plans to purchase another 100 trees in the fall in order to fill all empty tree pits in Hoboken.
