The New York Restoration Project is partnering with Friends of Brower Park, to give away free trees to the Crown Heights community to celebrate Earth Week and Arbor Day. We will have 100 trees to plant in our piece of Brooklyn and throughout New York City. With the help of more than 100 community organizations, NYRP has given away tens of thousands of trees to be planted in New York City!
To pick up a free tree in Brower Park on April 28, you must agree to:
-plant in one of the five boroughs;
-keep trees properly watered and maintained;
-and plant your tree in the ground of your yard or community garden and NOT along streets or in city parks.
**Note: There is a one tree maximum for participants who pre-register in Giveaways this year. Family members must be present to claim their own trees.**
Each tree comes with 1 lb. of compost to keep you tree well fed and healthy. Don’t forget to water your tree during dry seasons, keep a shallow layer of mulch over the soil.
Join a demonstration of proper tree care using leaf mold and mulch.
