Street Trees Workshop

The Lower East Side Ecology Center, Trees New York, and Green Depot are partnering to bring you the Care for Street Trees 101 workshop. In this tree care workshop, Trees New York will teach about the MillionTrees NYC initiative, basic tree science, and the do's and don'ts of tree care. Participants will receive a free kit of gardening tools courtesy of the NYC Department of Parks. Space is limited and registration is required for this event.

Street trees improve air quality, reduce inner city asthma rates, provide shade and lower urban temperatures, help fight climate change, increase property values and make our sidewalks beautiful. Stewardship is vital to increasing NYC's canopy as young, newly planted trees face numerous threats in this urban environment and require care if they are to survive into maturity.
