PLAINFIELD, NJ - Students from Union County’s 4-H youth clubs teamed up with several adult Master Tree Stewards to help beautify Cedar Brook Park in Plainfield.

The 35 students planted new trees and gave several older trees a protective covering of mulch around the base. The Tree Stewards and 4-H Clubs are community programs of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Union County, supported in part by the Freeholder Board as part of the national extension program.
