Union County, NJ – A total of thirty-five students from Union County’s 4-H youth clubs teamed up with several adult Master Tree Stewards earlier this month, all for the benefit of Cedar Brook Park in Plainfield. Together they planted new trees and gave several older trees a protective covering of mulch around the base. The Tree Stewards and 4-H Clubs are community programs of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County, supported in part by the Freeholder Board as part of the national Extension program. To join a 4-H club, lead a club or become a certified Master Tree Steward (no previous tree experience needed!) contact 4-H Agent Jim Nichnadowicz, 908-654-9854 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
