Trees New York’s “learning-while-doing” approach provides our volunteers with the awareness, knowledge and skills needed to ensure that our street trees survive and thrive.
Trees New York’s Tree Stewardship Training is designed to train and empower New Yorkers so that they can play an active role in supporting the health of our urban forest. Trees New York’s Environmental Educators teach lessons on the value of a healthy urban forest and the importance of volunteer efforts. Following each lesson, volunteers steward street trees. Trees New York’s Environmental Educators work alongside volunteers to guide their stewardship efforts and answer questions.
Trees New York works with both youth and adult volunteers and works throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Our target neighborhoods for 2017 include: Greenpoint, Western Queens and Northern Manhattan.
