Hello and happy fall –

In partnership with MillionTreesNYC, New York Restoration Project invites you to pick up a free tree at one of our final tree giveaway events this fall. This Saturday, November 16th, we are giving away 100 free trees with 116 Street Block Association at 55 East 115th Street between Park and Madison.

Available trees include redbuds, dogwoods, hazelnuts and serviceberries. Sign up online at http://treegiveaways.com/116sba to reserve the tree you want or show up from 10:30am and 12:30pm on November 16th. At least 5 trees of each species will be available first come, first served. Online registration will close at 12pm on Thursday, November 14th.

Please note that trees cannot be planted as street trees, on rooftops or terraces. All trees must be planted in the ground within the 5 boroughs on property you have permission to plant on. Tree planting and care instructions come with your tree. All you need is a place to plant, a shovel and access to water.

For questions, please contact Mike Mitchell at the New York Restoration Project by email at mmitchell@nyrp.org or by phone at (212)-333-2552. If you can’t make it out to any of our events this weekend, please check out www.nyrp.org/treegiveaways!
Continued greening,
Mike Mitchell
