Tuesday, October 7th & Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Between the hours of 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.


The Department of Parks, in partnership with the Puffin Foundation, wishes to find a second life for the celebrated Teaneck Red Oak tree announcing an “All-Call” to artisans, wood workers, and craftsmen to recycle and reuse the sections of the Red Oak that were saved after it was taken down last summer.

Sections of the tree were cut into milled lumber at a sawmill and segments of the large tree trunk and limbs were set aside until a new home could be found. While a good portion of the tree was disposed of due to its decayed condition, usable portions were saved for a future life.

The Department of Parks has scheduled two pick-up days for people to select and take the wood in their personal vehicles. The pickup days are Tuesday, October 7th and Thursday, October 9th, 2014 The locations are:

• Rochelle Park, at the Saddle River County Park. This storage area is located on Lotz Lane, Rochelle Park. It is located across from the Rochelle Park Swim Club. Uncut tree trunk and limbs are available at this location.
• Mahwah, at the Campgaw Mountain County Park. The entrance to the park is via Fike Road off of Campgaw Road. This entrance is north of the Bergen County Law and Public Safety Institute. Milled wood from the tree is available at this location.
* Signs will be placed directing people to the pick-up areas.

On both days, wood can be picked up between the hours of 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Bergen County Department of Parks staff will assist visitors in cutting and moving wood into their private vehicles.

In June 2013 the old-Teaneck Red Oak, located at Cedar Lane and Palisades Avenue, in the Township of Teaneck, was removed by the Bergen County Department of Parks. The removal of the tree confirmed analysis by a licensed tree expert who recommended its removal as it had significant wood decay and was a risk to the public.
