Every planting season, MillionTreesNYC engages enthusiastic, energetic, and environmentally–minded New Yorkers in volunteer tree planting and care activities in and around city parks.
Spring Volunteer Stewardship Day
With over 900,000 trees planted to date, we are well on our way to meeting the goal of planting one million trees almost two years ahead of schedule. But planting is just the first step in enhancing and preserving New York City's urban forest. Tree care and stewardship are the next critical steps to ensuring the survival of our urban forest. Join us on Saturday, April 25 to help care for young trees in natural areas of the following parks:
- Van Cortlandt Park, BRONX
- Inwood Hill Park, MANHATTAN
- Clove Lakes Park, STATEN ISLAND
- Conference House Park, STATEN ISLAND
- Wolfe's Pond Park, STATEN ISLAND

Natural Areas Volunteers Events
Natural Areas Volunteers (NAV) supports the restoration and protection of natural areas through volunteerism and training. Volunteers help to make sure the reforestation trees planted during MillionTreesNYC events continue to thrive and grow into healthy new forests.
Learn more about our city's reforestation initiative. And don’t forget that planting is only the first step in keeping our urban forests healthy and strong. For information about participating in tree care for reforested areas or street trees, visit our Care page or events calendar page.
