I'm one in a million

Dig in and help us grow past the one million mark.

Every planting season, enthusiastic, energetic, and environmentally-minded New Yorkers volunteer in tree planting activities in and around city parks. Learn more about upcoming volunteer tree planting and care opportunities, including: Spring Reforestation Day and Stewardship Team Events.

When you attend a tree planting event with us, we will provide all tools, gloves, and trees. Please come dressed in clothes that can get dirty and closed-toed shoes, and bring your own water bottle. We will teach you everything you need to know about planting a tree in a park.
