Tree City USA Grows a Greener Future in Cedar Grove
Autumn foliage in picturesque Cedar Grove Community ParkPhoto byChristopher Lotito | Lotito Earth Observatory. In New Jersey, development is everywhere and Cedar Grove is no exception. To drive down route 46 or just about any other highway is to pass through a manufactured landscape loosely designed by rough affiliation of private and governmental forces to fulfill a succession of needs: farming, mining, malls, and housing developments, New Jersey has it all. Sometimes this development can be beautiful, like the carefully planned and sculpted corporate campuses of Madison and Morristown, other times it can look like a housing development transplanted into a former strip mining site, like Clifton.
Why Mature Trees Matter More Than You Think

Ah, New Jersey: "The Garden State," come for the Taylor Ham, stay for the cannoli. Whether you're down the shore or downing a pint of craft beer in the highlands, no other state in the union can claim to offer quite so much as New Jersey. Whether you're from Jersey or just passing through, the one thing you can't fuggedabout are the state's 39,000 miles of public roads, spread across 10 interstates and countless county and local roads in 564 municipalities. New Jersey is the Garden State and that garden is highly accessible and extremely popular on a warm Spring day. All that popularity means traffic and traffic means carbon dioxide. All that traffic, combined with a thriving industrial sector, a vast international port, and our location downwind of urban and industrial centers in Pennsylvania has stacked up to give Jersey some very challenging air quality results in recent years. But some New Jerseyans think that instead of talking about gardens and vehicle emissions, the state should be having a conversation about forests and trees.
