A tree-mendous month! Due to all of our upcoming events we are extending our inaugural MillionTreesNYC Month through May 18. Find out the latest events.
About A Million Trees:
MillionTreesNYC, one of the 127 PlaNYC initiatives, is a citywide, public-private program with an ambitious goal: to plant and care for one million new trees across the City’s five boroughs over the next decade. By planting one million trees, New York City can increase its urban forestâ€”our most valuable environmental asset made up of street trees, park trees, and trees on public, private and commercial landâ€”by an astounding 20%, while achieving the many quality-of-life benefits that come with planting trees.
The City of New York will plant 60% of trees in parks and other public spaces. The other 40% will come from private organizations, homeowners, and community organizations.
