New York Restoration Project continues to partner with community organizations throughout the five boroughs to give away hundreds of free trees to New Yorkers during the spring and fall seasons. With the help of more than 100 community organizations, NYRP has given away tens of thousands of trees to be planted in New York City! 

This spring we will partner with the members of the Eastern Queens Alliance who work out of Idlewild Park Preserve. Saturday afternoon come meet the folks who work tirelessly to keep this green gem sparkling and take home one of nine native tree species! We're offering Tulip Poplar, Serviceberry, Black Tupelo and more!

To pick up a free tree, you must agree to:

-plant in one of the five boroughs;
-keep trees properly watered and maintained;
-and plant your tree in the ground of your yard or community garden and NOT along streets or in city parks.

**Note: There is a two tree maximum for participants in Giveaways this year. Family members must be present to claim their own trees.**

 

Registration is now closed. Please arrive early to register at the event as a walk-up to take home the free tree of your dreams.
