Princeton, NJ —December 10, 2004—Twenty fruit trees, an ornamental crab apple, a sugar maple, and two Norway maple trees have been given a new lease on life thanks to the generosity of SavATree of Princeton Junction. The trees are located on the historic Updike Farm property recently acquired by the Historical Society of Princeton NJ.
Dan Sieja, ISA Certified Arborist and NJ Certified Tree Expert, of SavATree contacted the Historical Society and offered to prune deadwood and perform crown restoration on the trees as a natural extension of the company’s mission. SavATree is devoted to preserving and enchancing the living treasures on the properties it serves throughout the northeast. Its museum clients include Historic Hudson Valley in New York, Valley Forge National Historic Park in Pennsylvania, Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC, and Liberty State Park in New Jersey. SavATree also preserves trees and shrubs for private homes as well as at major corporate centers such as the World Financial Center in New York City and BMW of North America in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey.
“When we purchased the Updike Farm last spring we knew that we added a new dimension to our mission to preserve Princeton’s history by preserving historic natural resources,” said the Historical Society of Princeton’s Director, Gail Stern. “We are very grateful to SavATree for their guidance and their effort to help us preserve the trees that are so much a part of the Updike Farm’s history.”
