NJ Tree Foundation – Volunteering to plant trees in Camden: http://njtreefoundation.org/about/camdens-urban-airshed-reforestation-program/
A group of 6 PS&S employees from Cherry Hill/Delaware Valley volunteered their time with the NJ Tree Foundation and participated in the Urban Airshed Reforestation Program by planting shade trees in Camden, NJ.
The team from PS&S included: Jeanne Jorquez, James Jorquez, Vibhuti Bhimani, Marge DellaVecchia, Abbey Greenberg and Max Barksdale. Working together with the NJ Conservation Foundation, Rutgers University, the Camden Power Corps and neighborhood volunteers, 20’ tall shade trees were planted along 34th Street in Camden.
The planting of these trees helps to improve air quality, manage storm water and provide shade to the area. Since the program’s inception, over 6,000 trees have been planted along Camden city streets.
