Trees NY's Tree Stewardship Volunteer Event

The Office of New York City Council Member Mark Levine and Trees New York is partnering for a Tree Stewardship Volunteer Event

In New York City, where there is limited funding for tree maintenance but significant need, volunteer stewardship is crucial to the survival of street trees.

Join us as we remove litter from tree beds, cultivate soil, mulch, water and plant flowers.

Prepare for the day as if you’re going hiking. Wear a backpack that you keep on through the whole event, bring water to stay hydrated, wear sturdy shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty. Bring a hat and/or sunblock. Get ready to have fun and get some exercise in the urban forest!

Saturday, June 18th
10 am - 12 pm
Meeting Location:
152nd Broadway and Riverside (Northwest Corner)


  • A mature tree removes almost 70 times more pollution than a newly planted tree.
  • A young healthy tree provides the same cooling effect of 10 air conditioners operating 20 hours a day for an entire year.
