About MillionTrees NYC

I'm Counting on You

MillionTreesNYC, one of the 132 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 forest—our most valuable environmental asset made up of street trees, park trees, and trees on public, private and commercial land—by an astounding 20%, while achieving the many quality-of-life benefits that come with planting trees.

The City of New York will plant 70% of trees in parks and other public spaces. The other 30% will come from private organizations, homeowners, and community organizations.

Street Trees 220,000
Parks (reforestation and landscape), other agencies, and zoning regulations 480,000
Private Partners 300,000
Grand Total 1 Million New Trees

The above figures are estimated and subject to change.
