NJ Shade Tree Federation Annual Meeting
The New Jersey Shade Tree Federation Annual Business Meeting will be held this year in November.
Date, place and time TBD and will be posted here and in our bimonthly newsletter "The Shade Tree" when information becomes available.
The New Jersey Shade Tree Federation is a non-profit organization that has been assisting those individuals and agencies entrusted with the selection, planting and care of trees, since 1926.
Our objective is to educate our members by providing the latest up-to-date information and techniques relating to the care and maintenance of shade trees, in order to provide tree-lined streets for future generations.
The New Jersey Shade Tree Federation accomplishes its objectives by bringing knowledgeable experts within the tree industry to speak at our Annual Conferences. Our speakers include nationally recognized scientific professionals, college professors, and tree experts. We also publish a bi-monthly newsletter that contains additional informative articles regarding the care and maintenance of shade trees. We invite you to become an active member in the NJSTF.
Our office, conveniently located on the Cook College Campus of Rutgers University, may be contacted for a wide range of information and services.
Our goal is to improve the status of our profession and to establish liaisons between allied associations, businesses, and federal, state and municipal governments, in order to provide tree-lined streets for future generations.
