Every planting season, MillionTreesNYC engages enthusiastic, energetic, and environmentally–minded New Yorkers in volunteer tree planting and care activities in and around city parks.
Participate During our Fall 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.
On Saturday, October 24, help us care for your forest restoration trees previously planted by volunteers at the following sites:
- Pelham Bay Park, Hunter Island - BRONX
- Marine Park - BROOKLYN
- Inwood Hill Park - MANHATTAN
- Alley Pond Park - QUEENS
- Conference House Park - STATEN ISLAND

Participate During our Fall Planting Events!
Eight years ago, the city launched MillionTreesNYC with an ambitious goal: to plant and care for one million new trees across the city. The benefits to be gained were clear: improved air and water quality; reduced pollution from storm water runoff, flooding and erosion; and reduced energy costs, to name a few. To date, volunteers have helped plant over 300,000 trees in parks!
This fall we have several opportunities for volunteers to participate in growing healthy new forests. Join our Stewardship Team to plant forest restoration trees at the following sites on the dates listed below:
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28 - WOLFE'S POND PARK, STATEN ISLAND
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7 - BUCK'S HOLLOW, STATEN ISLAND
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21 - PELHAM BAY PARK, BRONX
In this endeavor, MillionTreesNYC and NYC Parks are joined by the Natural Areas Conservancy, a non-profit organization that was formed to restore and conserve the natural areas of New York City, including forests and wetlands, to enhance the lives of all New Yorkers.

Additional Stewardship Opportunities
The NYC Parks Stewardship Team 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.
