Street trees do so much to improve our environment but often receive little care. Learn best practices to spruce up your tree beds for spring while improving the health and resilience of your block's trees. We'll also discuss how street tree care can be a great way to motivate your neighbors to participate in the Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest. Take home a plant to try in your street tree bed!
