Hillside Students Celebrate Arbor Day

Union County, NJ Union County Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski (center) thanked students from George Washington School in Hillside who participated in the Union County’s annual Arbor Day Tree Planting event. Along with their teacher Daniel Jamieson (left), the students visited Williams Nursery in Westfield last week and received instruction on successful tree planting and care from nursery owner Dave Williams (right). Every year the Freeholder Board distributes free trees for schools, in cooperation with the Union County Shade Tree Advisory Board and the 4-H youth development program of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County. The Arbor Day program includes tree planting guidance hosted by Williams Nursery. For more information about 4-H clubs and activities in Union County visit online at
