Free Trees for NYC Residents!

By October 19, 2008

Follow me on:

MillionTreesNYC has a goal: Plant 1 million trees across New York City by 2017.

If you live in NYC, here's your chance to help out. American Express has donated funds to MillionTreesNYC for 1250 trees that will be given to anyone willing to plant them. There is a limit of one tree per household, though there is the opportunity for community groups to adopt 5+ trees.

There are two more events where you can pick up a tree:

  • Saturday, October 25th 9 am to 2 pm (Its My Park! Day) Atlas Park Greenmarket Queens Cooper Ave at 80th Street
  • Saturday, October 25th 10 am to 3 pm (Its My Park! Day) Crotona Park Fall Harvest Festival - Bronx Fulton Avenue and Crotona Park North

There will be a variety of trees available. Don't fret - there will be experts available to help you pick out the right tree for your location.

I love projects like this. More trees for everyone! Be sure to visit MillionTreesNYC
