Florence Township Received Forestry Grant
Florence Township has been awarded a grant from the New Jersey Forestry Service for a tree removal and planting project. The $15,000.00 grant will help the township remove and replace trees on Sixth Avenue in Roebling. A majority of these trees are in a state of decline and need to be replaced. The grant is also directed toward re-establishing the street trees along Broad Street and East & West Front Street in Florence. These two streets were once graced by large shade trees that were lost due to age and disease. It is anticipated that work may begin this Fall depending on tree availability and weather conditions.
