Description

The Lower East Side Ecology Center, in collaboration with Trees NY and MillionTreesNYC, will show you how any New Yorker can care for their local street trees, even in the winter. In this workshop you will learn about the benefits of having trees in your neighborhood, how they reduce air pollution, beautify, and increase business! You will also learn how to plant native species in tree pits for water retention and beautification, aerate a tree pit, apply compost, and order free street trees for your block. Registration is required, which you can complete here.

All participants in the Street Trees Care workshops can recieve a free street tree care kit if they adopt a tree or a block in their neighborhood. If you have questions, feel free to email [email protected]
