Preregistration Required

Street trees do much to improve our environment but often receive little care. Fall is a great time to give your street tree some TLC to see it through winter and lay the groundwork for a healthy rebirth in spring. Yet even the most well-intentioned practices can damage our neighborhood trees. Learn to avoid the common “pit”-falls of tree bed gardening and how to remedy them. Topics include tree guards, watering, deterring dogs, low-maintenance plantings, and more. Bring your questions!


This free workshop is presented as part of City of Forest Day, a day of activities across the city to raise awareness of the importance of New York City’s seven million trees.
