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.
