At Keep It Green Landscaping, we have made Arbor Day a part of our company tradition by planting trees at local area elementary schools. A company tradition we hope to continue for years to come.

In 2002, on behalf of the New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association, Keep It Green Landscaping put together a special Arbor Day Celebration at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ with the help of fellow member company Beaumont Landscaping, Flanders, NJ. Each company sent team members to install a Ginko Biloba tree, donated by associate member The Terre Company, Clifton , NJ.
The Interpretive Center, an environmental and historical education facility, was chosen for the new planting. This location was chosen because of its direct line of site view across the Hudson River to the former site of the World Trade Center. This special tree honors all who were lost on September 11, 2001, as well as all Americans and the principles of freedom. Children, on field trips, visiting the center are told of its special meaning.
