MORRIS COUNTY – Cerbo Greenhouse in Parsippany continues to champion the spirit of giving through its annual ‘Trees for Troops’ fundraiser. This commendable event, now in its sixth year, is dedicated to providing Christmas trees to service members and their families, both at home and abroad, as a gesture of appreciation for their dedication and service.

The initiative not only delivers holiday joy to military households but also serves to fortify community solidarity and offer thanks to those who sacrifice for the nation. On December 2, a team of military personnel and local community volunteers were seen loading a FedEx trailer with fresh-cut Christmas trees, all destined for families of service members in need.

Marcus Celiano, representing Golden Wolf Landscape & Design, played a pivotal role by loading the first tree of the 250 destined for the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point. This effort was part of the “Trees for Troops” initiative sponsored by Cerbo Greenhouse.

Meghan Hunscher, President of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce, highlighted the financial challenges military families face, particularly during deployment. “Supporting our service members and their families during the holiday season is a meaningful way to demonstrate our gratitude and support,” she remarked.

Ron DiMaggio, a dedicated member of the Parsippany-Troy Hills Volunteer Fire Department District 6, was seen actively participating in the event by carrying a tree to be loaded onto the FedEx truck

Tyler Cerbo, who has been instrumental in organizing the campaign, announced that this year, over 250 trees are en route to the Marine Corps Air Station in Cherry Point, North Carolina. A donation of only $35 was required for someone to contribute a tree to the program.

The Trees for Troops program, a national campaign under a 501(c)(3) organization, has successfully delivered thousands of farm-grown Christmas trees to military bases across the United States. Assemblywoman Aura Dunn lauded Tyler Cerbo’s efforts and noted the significance of Cerbo’s participation as one of only two companies in New Jersey involved in the Trees for Troops program, underscoring the impact of this local initiative on the national stage.
