Here in Princeton, we usually combine our Arbor Day celebration with Communiversity, which falls around the same time (April 30th this year).
This year, we're asking for your help.
Have you or your family ever planted Arbor Day seedlings distributed over the past decades at Communiversity each spring? If yes, please contact the Shade Tree Commission through our web form on this site. The commission wants to track success rates of these seedlings, and compile a list of robust specimens now thriving in the borough. If there are family stories, special events (graduations, weddings etc.) or honorees connected with the planting of these new trees, even photos, please elaborate under "Your Message". Thank you!!

"Ivory Silk" -- was planted curbside), and Alexandra Radbil, who became Borough Shade Tree chair in 2012.
