thousands of new street trees being planted each year, it's good to know that
learning to care for street trees is easy. How to get started? One of the
simplest ways is through a two-hour training offered by The New York Tree Trust
and Partnerships for Parks. It's free, and also gives you a free set of tools to take home at the end of the workshop. In addition, you can now bring a tree care workshop to your community group.
Partnering up with friends, neighbors, or groups in your
community in caring for trees is enjoyable and has a big impact. Some New Yorkers have already-for years-gone about working as groups of friends, block associations, or have partnered up with local schools or businesses for help in stewarding neighborhood trees.
If your group is looking to learn how to get started, you can now request a tree care workshop for your group or community.
Another advantage of working as a group is that it can also open more doors to resources and to raising funds.
Partnerships for Parks can also support your group in helping you network, linking you to resources, and supporting your stewardship efforts in the community.

The next open workshops will be held in the evening time
in Rego Park, Queens, on Feb. 27, and in Chelsea on March 31. Registration is
required since they fill up quickly. For more information on these workshops, or
