BASKING RIDGE, NJ - Kids from Morristown and surrounding towns are invited to take part in the Back to Nature's second annual Holiday Tree Giveaway. Kids can come to Back to Nature Home and Garden and decorate a live tree anyway they like for free. Lights and decorations are provided.

During its Holiday Tree Giveaway event, though December 24, Back to Nature is donating 5,000 free evergreens to local communities and inviting children to experience the joy of decorating them in their Santa’s Workshop.  In exchange, Back to Nature is asking them to commit to planting the live Spruces in their yards next spring as a lesson in sustainability and the importance of giving back to the Earth.

The town who has the most children come decorate a tree and pledge to plant the most trees will win another 100 shade trees for a public restoration or beautification project.

“This is the perfect season to give back to our local communities while educating children on the importance of giving back to the environment,” said Anthony Sblendorio, owner of Back to Nature, a garden center and ecologically-minded landscape design/build firm. “Our area tree population is still recovering from the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, and with the new threat of the Emerald Ash Borer, we need to continue to support our environment.”

“The challenge is a fun way to involve the towns and their residents,” said Sblendorio. “Everyone is very excited about it and some of the towns have already identified projects that would benefit from the free trees.”

 “Living trees are gifts that keep on giving,” continued Sblendorio. “Kids love the whole experience of decorating holiday trees and they will have so much fun planting them in the spring.”
