Free trees from the NYRP

The New York Restora­tion Project, the Bet­te Midler-found­ed, com­mu­ni­ty gar­den-pro­tect­ing orga­ni­za­tion has announced its annu­al Spring Tree Give­away. The NYRP, in part­ner­ship with Toy­ota, will be giv­ing away 4,500 trees over thir­ty sep­a­rate give­away days from March until May.

Reg­is­ter here to get a tree and learn more about the restric­tions you have to agree to before tak­ing a tree home (plant in one of the five bor­oughs, and not on a fire escape). Rep­re­sen­ta­tives will be avail­able at each give­away to run you through the basics of plant­i­ng, water­ing and main­tain­ing your tree. Learn more about NYC’s goal to plant 1,000,000 trees over the next decade here.

Reg­is­tra­tion will be post­ed no ear­lier than three weeks before a give­away date. If reg­is­tra­tion is closed, a lim­it­ed quan­ti­ty of trees will be avail­able on a first come, first served basis.

To pick up your free tree, you must agree:
— To plant in one of the five bor­oughs.
— To keep trees prop­er­ly watered and main­tained.
NOT to plant your tree along streets, in city parks, in con­tain­ers, ter­races, bal­conies or on roofs.

Learn how to take care of your new tree at one of our free tree care work­shops.
