BRANCHVILLE, NJ — This weekend, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) visited Cerbo’s Christmas Tree Farm in Branchville — North Jersey’s largest tree farm, with 200+ acres and thousands of trees. Cerbo’s has provided more than 500 Christmas trees for military families through the Trees For Troops program this year. Since 2005, Cerbo’s Tree Farm has joined forces with other tree farms to donate more than 260,000 trees to troops and military families. 

“There is no commitment more sacred than the one we have to those who have served our nation, as well as their families. I want to thank the entire team at Cerbo’s Tree Farm for everything they do for our North Jersey community and for making the holidays brighter for the brave women and men of our armed services,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “Family-owned businesses like Cerbo’s are the backbone of our local economies. North Jersey and our entire nation are going through incredibly difficult times, with many local businesses struggling, and I’ve been working every day to help get our local small businesses and workers the resources and support they need.”
