BRADLEY BEACH — The Bradley Beach Shade Tree Commission held a tree-planting event, with its members meeting at Second and Hammond avenues at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14.
The Shade Tree Commission hosts a tree planting event twice a year that brings residents together to give back to their community. The commission has planted about 150 trees over the years.
Members such as Borough Council President Jane DeNoble and Anne Gubitosi were in attendance.
“The Shade Tree Commission did an amazing job! The borough is now 24 trees richer! It is so exciting seeing our tree canopy expand each year,” said Ms. DeNoble, “And of course the Bradley Beach DPW came through again and did the heavy lifting, digging the holes, delivering the trees, staking and adding the watering bags. Also, so very grateful for Honor Me for covering the costs and the application fees that sponsored this event.”
Honor Me is a dedication program that allows residents to plant a tree in remembrance of a loved one for $350.
The commission meets every first Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. in Bradley Beach Municipal Court. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on Nov. 1.
