MillionTreesNYC needs the help of community stakeholders, businesses, advocacy groups, researchers, volunteers, and non-profit organizations to accomplish ambitious citywide tree planting and care goals.
Everyone is digging in to make MillionTreesNYC a success!
In addition to individual New Yorkers, MillionTreesNYC is mobilizing support from all corners of the City to help plant a million trees by 2017. With lead support from the NYC Parks Department and the New York Restoration Project, MillionTreesNYC will stimulate tree-planting, stewardship, education, community outreach, and public awareness efforts through a coalition of partners and sponsors. These groups include community-based and non-profit organizations throughout NYC, government agencies, statewide and national organizations, and corporate sponsors.
MillionTreesNYC volunteer plantings and tree care events are, in part, powered by NYC Service. NYC Service helps more New Yorkers connect to service opportunities more easily, while targeting volunteers to address the City's greatest needs.
If your organization would like to be involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

To make sure that MillionTreesNYC successfully engages as many New Yorkers as possible, the Parks Department and New York Restoration Project have established an Advisory Committee to contribute to the strategic direction and implementation of the MillionTreesNYC initiative. In addition to serving on the MillionTreesNYC Advisory Committee, organizational members are also invited to participate in issue-specific subcommittees as a means of providing new program ideas and feedback on particular aspects of the initiative's design and implementation: Tree Planting, Education, Stewardship, Marketing and Public Relations, Public Policy Initiatives, Research and Evaluation, and Green Jobs.
