BRIELLE — The Brielle Shade Tree Commission, together with the Department of Public Works, distributed 43 “street trees” this year, in an unprecedented success of their annual program to supply trees to residents to plant along the borough right of way – the roadside edge of residents’ property within the borough of Brielle.
Additionally, the Shade Tree Commission will be launching a new program, to identify old, unique or large trees in the town.
“We had a wonderful response this year,” said Bob Imgrund, of the Shade Tree Commission. “We have offered trees for the past 20 years to residents of Brielle. We’re glad residents consistently participate in this program each year and are interested in planting more trees to keep our town green.”
He continued, “we typically provide about 20 trees, but this year we were able to provide 43. The Department of Public Works did a great job helping us get the trees to where they needed to go.”
The annual program offers a limited number of trees free of charge to residents, prioritizing those who have not recently requested a tree. The program aims to encourage residents to plant trees along the borough’s streets to help maintain the foliage in Brielle for years to come.
