The New York Tree Trust

New York Tree Trust

The New York Tree Trust, a program of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and the City Parks Foundation, was established in 1994 to protect, preserve, and enhance New York City's street, park and forest trees. The goals of the Tree Trust are to foster public-private partnerships in urban forestry, raise public awareness of the importance of urban forestry conservation and stewardship, promote new technologies to enhance tree survival and advance innovative management tools, and revitalize historically and arboreally significant municipal trees.

To find out more information about the Tree Trust, please feel free to contact James Kaechele at or (718) 760-6911.
