CHFD News & Information: Annual Cherry Tree Planting Along Chapel Avenue


On Saturday, April 9, "A" Platoon members from Ladder 24, Engine 22, Squirt 51, and Battalion 13 planted over a dozen cherry trees along Chapel Avenue.


The Cherry Hill Firefighters were joined by members of Rehab 13 and American Legion Post 372 who helped place dozens of American flags along the roadway between Haddonfield Road and Kings Highway.


Resident Joe Zanghi started the tradition of planting the trees along Chapel Avenue and other Township buildings back in 1973.




The blooming of the trees is marked with a yearly "9/11 Rememberance and Patriotic Gratitude" observance at the Joyce Kilmer School.



The Kwanzan cherry trees will bring the total number of trees planted around the Township to over 1,400.
