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! 

 Join Student Conservation Association and NYRP Saturday morning to ConSERVE New York City this Earth Day!  Together we will giveaway 250 trees to NYC residents like you! Sign up to 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.**

Come for a tree but be sure to stick around for the festivities, workshops and service opportunities. With support from American Express and Southwest Airlines, SCA is bringing together hundreds of families and community members for volunteers projects and activities at Riverbank State Park in Manhattan. NYRP will also raffle off a worm bin compost system after our workshop on Vermi-Compost at Home!

Register to volunteer!

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.
