UNION COUNTY, NJ - Freeholder Angel G. Estrada, (left), a longtime advocate for urban forestry, helped to give away 200 free willow oak and flowering dogwood saplings earlier this month. Receiving a willow oak is County resident Alan Hauser.

The trees were donated by the New Jersey Tree Foundation in partnership with the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the New York/New Jersey Super Bowl XLVIII Host Committee, and the US Forest Service as part of a five-county effort to replace trees destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.
