MillionTreesNYC is more than planting trees-it's a movement!
MillionTreesNYC has planted more than 200,000 trees since its launch in October 2007, including more than 30,000 street trees. This could only be achieved with the support of thousands of volunteers like you! Now we want to keep these young newly planted trees healthy and growing! Trees face many natural and man-made threats from the urban environment and require ongoing maintenance to survive. You can have a leading role in supporting the health and heartiness of street trees by becoming a MillionTrees steward or even simply by watering trees planted near you. Find out what trees are available for stewardship in your area.
Not sure what it takes to be an official MillionTrees steward? Would you like to take a tree care workshop and receive training, tools and a Parks permit to work on street trees? MillionTreesNYC and its partners regularly host stewardship workshops citywide. Check our community calendar for upcoming workshops near you or contact us at [email protected] if you would like to host one in your neighborhood. We look forward to you being part of our MillionTrees Stewardship Corps.
Have you already taken a workshop? This MillionTreesNYC Stewardship Corps Adopt-a-Tree website will help you to pitch in. Through this website, you can easily locate young trees that need stewardship right in your neighborhood, maybe even on your block! You can also create a log-in and adopt trees, record your progress in caring for them and find stewardship groups in your area.
No matter how you choose to participate you will be nurturing a legacy when you care for a tree and providing an extraordinary gift to New York City for generations to come. Together we will make our City greener!
