Planting Sustainability Across the Nation

Five Star Holiday DecorTRENTON – A company with an eco-friend initiative, Five Star Holiday Decor recently donated 3 Norway spruce trees (valued at $225.00) to the New Jersey Tree Foundation.

The NJ Tree Foundation is statewide non-profit organization dedicated to planting trees in New Jersey’s most neglected neighborhoods; the trees donated from Five Star were planted in Liberty Park.

Five Star Holiday Decor, in a partnership with the Alliance for Community Trees, guarantees that all their unused trees that remain after the holiday seasons are replanted in local communities. President of Five Star Holiday Decor, Mark Knoch, hopes to continue donating to several local organizations throughout the nation each year.

“I think it’s important that we do our best to make the right decisions when it comes to recycling and replanting,” Knoch said. “If we can recycle Christmas lights and find homes for living trees, it gives me a feeling of satisfaction knowing that the trees will continue to benefit the local communities for many years to come as they grow alongside us.”

In addition to tree donations, Five Star Holiday Decor also offers a national Christmas light recycling program. For more information about this program or to learn more about Five Star Holiday Decor, visit www.fivestarholidaydecor.com.
