Trees New York
Trees New York has over 40 years of experience in community tree planting, stewardship and education projects. Since its founding, Trees New York has trained over 12,500 Citizen Pruners and 8,000 youth in tree care and stewardship. In the last 10 years alone, we planted over 4,000 trees in underserved communities throughout New York City, including on New York City Housing Authority campuses, school playgrounds, community gardens, and street trees. In New York City, where there is limited funding for tree maintenance but significant need, volunteer stewardship is crucial to the survival of our street trees. Big or small, young or old, all street trees improve the quality of life in our city. Large, mature trees have the greatest impact on the environment – removing almost 70 times more pollution than a newly planted tree. Reaching maturity, however, is anything but easy for a New York City street tree. Pollution, dog waste, soil compaction, drought, vandalism and de-icing agents are just a few of many common threats. Trees New York’s programs guarantee a healthier urban forest and create a pool of volunteers who are educated, trained and committed to supporting the health of New York City’s urban environment. Trees New York provides ongoing support to aid and guide our volunteers in their efforts.
