New York City’s Urban Forest

Sunlight streams through the leaves and branches of a tree

Our street trees are living breathing parts of our communities (though they often go unnoticed). They bring us shade in the warm months, shield us from the cold in the winter, and provide fresh air for us to breath all year long. To better grow and protect our urban forest it is important to get acquainted with your NYC trees.

Tree Services

NYC Parks provides a variety of tree and sidewalk-related services to New York City, including street tree planting, sidewalk repair, tree removal, and more. If you know your service type and would like to submit a request, please use our online forestry service request system to do so.
