Join Trees New York, Gowanus Canal Conservency and The Nature Conservancy on Friday, August 20th from 10:30 to 12:30pm and help us care for young street trees
Volunteer stewardship activities include:
Tree bed clean up and soil cultivation – In addition to being unsightly, compacted soil and litter block the movement of oxygen, water and nutrients to tree roots. Help us remove litter and weeds from tree beds and loosen up the surface soil with hand cultivators
Watering Trees – New York City street trees live in permanent drought conditions. All trees, especially newly planted trees, need thorough and deep watering during the spring and summer. Help us water trees using buckets and hoses.
Mulching – Mulch conserves water, moderates soil temperatures, improves soil structure and mitigates damage from dogs, people, de-icing salts and cleaning agents. Help us mulch trees with mulch and/or woodchips.
This event is possible in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and with support from American Express.
