Morristown will begin its Tree Rejuvenation Project this week, expect delays around town.

The town of Morristown has announced a tree well rejuvenation project set to begin on or about March 27, 2023. This undertaking, known as the Tree Root Invigoration Project, aims to improve the health of the trees, reduce maintenance, and enhance walkability in the area. The F.A. Bartlett Tree Expert Company has been contracted to carry out the project, which will involve the installation of a Biochar soil amendment in existing tree wells.

The project will consist of several phases, including the removal of existing tree well mulch and grates, air spading of the tree well soil, and installation of the Biochar soil amendment and mulching. Morristown's Arborist, Evan Dilluvio, will be overseeing the work, and residents are encouraged to email him at with any questions or concerns.

Work in front of local establishments will only cause a few hours of disturbance each day and is expected to be completed within approximately two days. The working hours are scheduled for Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, with select location-based restrictions. On-street parking in and along the work zone will be prohibited during construction but will be reinstated outside of working hours and on evenings and weekends.

Contractors will place signs and cones daily to reserve work locations in and along curb lines by tree wells. Access to all businesses will be maintained throughout the project, and sidewalk areas within the work zone will remain open while work is ongoing. There may be brief interruptions when the contractor is actively air-spading.

Access for emergency vehicles will also be maintained at all times. Morristown officials have expressed enthusiasm for the project, stating that it will greatly enhance the quality of life in the area.

For any questions or concerns regarding the Tree Root Invigoration Project, or to discuss any aspect of the undertaking, residents are encouraged to contact the appropriate local authorities. The town of Morristown looks forward to a successful project that will benefit the community and the environment.
