Tamke Tree Experts is participating in “GreenCare for Troops” in Essex, Hunterdon, Somerset, Mercer, Morris, Union and Warren Counties in New Jersey and Bucks County, Pennsylvania. “GreenCare for Troops” is a nationwide outreach program initiated by Project EverGreen that connects participating local landcare professionals with families of the men and women away from home serving our country in the armed forces.

In announcing the new program, Chris Hunt, Tamke Sales Representative and army war veteran, said, “Tree and shrub maintenance becomes a definite hardship when a family’s major breadwinner is on active duty away from home. The “GreenCare for Troops” program seeks to ease this stress by helping affected families with the important task of caring for their property.”

Families interested in applying for the “GreenCare for Troops” program should contact Tamke Tree Experts at 800-822-3537. Participation is limited. To learn more, families may also access the Project EverGreen website at www.projectevergreen.com or call toll-free (877)758-4835.
