Marlboro Shade Tree Committee 

Planting trees is one of the easiest and most powerful things you can do to have a positive impact on the environment. Trees clean the air, prevent rainwater runoff, help you save energy and even combat global warming. For more, link to the Arbor Day Foundation at

For planting and care information see the USDA Tree Owner's Manual

Marlboro Township has achieved “Tree City USA” community status annually since 2008, meeting the high standards to earn this honor with an active tree board, a tree-care ordinance, a community forestry program and an annual Arbor Day observance. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with the National Association of State Foresters and the USDA Forest Service.

The Marlboro Shade Tree Committee launched the Community Garden in 2016, and it has been a huge success ever since. Gardeners work their own garden plots gaining valuable knowledge and experience as well as the produce of the season. The Marlboro Community Garden has contributed hundreds of pounds of fresh produce yearly for local donation. Please visit to register for Township email notifications and ensure you receive updates for the coming season and when plots become available. More information about the Community Garden can be found at  Read policy info and complete application. Applicants will be contacted by a Garden Manager
