Description

MillionTreesNYC is an ambitious campaign to plant and care for one million new trees in New York City. Implemented by the City of New York Department of Parks & Recreation and the nonprofit New York Restoration Project, this innovative, citywide effort crosses property jurisdictions and physical sites. The goal is to enhance the entire 'green matrix' of the urban forest across streets, recreational parks, natural areas, schools, public housing campuses, and private yards. A healthy urban forest helps make New York City 'greener and greater' and supports the goals of the city's sustainability plan, PlaNYC2030.
