Seedling Donations Are Much Appreciatied!


A big thank you to Lyndhurst resident Aaron Hotchkiss, who recently donated dozens of oak seedlings and several Red Maple seedlings to the NJSEA. The oak seedlings sprouted from acorns that had been lying in the ground in his grandmother’s backyard and were exposed to the sun after Aaron removed a tree for safety reasons.

After coming across so many seedlings, Aaron wanted to find a good home for them, and we were happy to accept! They’ll be planted at DeKorte Park next week.

Thank you once again Aaron!

    Didn’t realize you’d accept these as donations – my yard is overrun with seedlings from the thousands of acorns that drop from my neighbor’s oak. Let me know if you want some more and how to get them to you!
