Seven 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.
But MillionTreesNYC 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.
This spring's MillionTreesNYC forest restoration day will focus on stewardship and caring for young forests that have already been planted. In this endeavor, MillionTreesNYC and NYC Parks are joined by the Natural Areas Conservancy, a non-profit organization that was formed to restore and preserve the natural areas of New York City, including forests and wetlands, to enhance the lives of all New Yorkers.
Since 2007, we have come a long way towards reaching our goal of planting one million trees, and we are confident that we will get there. We ask you now to continue the work that we've done together and to join us in meeting the next challenge to ensure a sustainable city.
Volunteer forest restoration stewardship activities will include:
  • Removing invasive weeds
  • Picking up litter
  • Spreading mulch

Register online, registration is required.
