The New York Tree Trust
is planting 70 trees throughout Parkchester, in both the North and South Condo areas for free. There will be many different types of tree plantings, but the goal here is to have accented trees with color and offsetting bloom periods so that we have trees blooming throughout the summer months.
The Tree Trust, a program of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and the City Parks Foundation, was established in 1994 to protect, preserve, and enhance New York City’s street, park, and forest trees. The goals of the Trust are to foster public-private partnerships in urban forestry, raise public awareness of the importance of urban forestry conservation and stewardship, promote new technologies to enhance tree survival and advance innovative management tools.
